The Brazoria County Engineering Department and the Brazoria County Sheriff's Office have formed a partnership in law enforcement.

The program is designed to decrease road damage from overweight trucks and to increase public safety.

Texas Transportation Code, Section 621.409 allows for this Weight Scale Enforcement Program and will ensure that commercial trucking industries obey the weight limit laws on Brazoria County's roads.
