    Pa. police issue traffic ticket for over $37,000

    Apr 2, 9:03 PM (ET)

    BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - A police captain in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley said it's the highest fine he's ever seen on a traffic ticket: $37,554.54. Bethlehem Police Capt. David Kravatz said the major violation was not getting the "super load" permit that was needed because the truck was hauling a 213,000-pound steel cylinder. Police cited the driver and truck owner.
    Kravatz said the truck sat idle for almost three weeks after it tipped on March 12 because a new route, proper permits and a police escort took so long to plan. It was removed Wednesday.

    I have seen some huge overweight fines for trucks but by far this is the largest I have ever heard about happening.

    With a 213,000 lb load it doesn't take much inertia to roll a 13000lb cab and 15000 lb flatbed. Somethin tells me this dude got paid a ton of dough to haul a load no pro would dare to handle.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
