Oversize and Overweight Commercial Vehicles (18-10)

Transportation & Motor Vehicles

State and federal regulations set standards for the size and weight of commercial vehicles operated on public highways.  A commercial vehicle is any vehicle used for commerce that has a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds or more.  Commercial vehicles that exceed the established weight standards can receive state permits to travel along certain routes.  This issue brief discusses the regulation, permitting, and routing of oversize and overweight commercial vehicles.

The effective date for bills enacted without a safety clause is August 7, 2024, if the General Assembly adjourns sine die on May 8, 2024, unless otherwise specified. Details
