In chapter 12 when he pulls on the scale at the weigh station his trailer axles make a combined weight of 35,180lbs. The limit is 34,000lbs - add the broken head light assembly and the D.O.T would not have thought twice about stopping him for good. Additionally, any weigh station inspection is going to require the Motor Carrier Enforcement officers to check the driver's license, bills of lading for their cargo, insurance, and permits, which was not done during the scale house scene.

Yes, it has many a plot hole. Yes, the acting isn't Oscar worthy. And yes, it's a cheesy B-grade movie. But guess what? I like it. "Black Dog" is a silly trucker action/thriller topped off with comedy, both intentional and unintentional, and a really, really cool country music score. The reason why so many people don't like it is simply 'cause they are taking it far too seriously. If you're like me and have had plenty of warning NOT to take "Black Dog" so seriously (thanks to the other IMDb members), then you'll like "Black Dog".
In short, DO NOT expect "Black Dog" to be something like "Donnie Darko" and/or "Fight Club". Don't take it seriously and you may just have a rollicking good time, especially if you are a fan of anyone who stars in it.
