Capt. Matthew Lott keeps an eye on the monitor that provides information about the trucks crossing the scales. This particular weigh station has thermal imaging that can detect if a truck’s tires are underinflated, which would give off a higher heat signature. Mississippi DOT’s computer system also reads the license plates and DOT numbers of the trucks before they hit the scales, allowing officers to see any previous inspection data, out-of-service data and more about the truck and driver.
