James Stephenson was hauling a long steel cylinder weighing more than 100 tons through the rust-belt city, on the way to Allentown.
The trouble started when he tried to make a sharp turn and the trailer tipped over.
When police arrived, they discovered Stephenson had a permit for an oversize load, but not one for a super-load.
A spokesman for the Pennsylvania Transportation Department called that, quote, "A big no-no."
For his big no-no super-load, officers issued Stephenson a ticket for 37-thousand-555 dollars.
