Go to a truck stop with certified scales, weigh your truck and trailer together empty, that includes you being out when they weigh it. If you are under or at 10G then you are cool. Save the ticket in the glovebox for next time they stop you. If you are over, better register and then you have to have it printed on the doors of your truck.
Let me guess I-70? Especially if you are hauling a trailer, you will be stopped. They have the right to stop you under the Patriot Law. The KHP makes numerous drug bust, stop rolling meth labs, and illegal aliens arrest everyday doing this.
You can however ask for a stop tag during a stop inspection. Once you have been cleared and and no citations given, then ask one. It is a barcoded white sticker that they will place on the outside of your windsheild. It is read by their new radar guns and it informs them that you have been stopped within the last three months and you were good to go. After the three months is up and you get zapped, you will have to do it all over again. This is a new program that they are doing but they keep it to themselves. Cats out of the bag now.
