The bill requires an applicant for an overweight motor vehicle
permit to provide third-party documentation establishing the gross weight
of the load if the permit application is for a vehicle and load combination
that weighs at least 200,000 pounds and less than 500,000 pounds. The
carrier is required to carry the documentation in the vehicle during the
permitted move and produce the documentation for any state agency or
law enforcement personnel. In addition to any other penalty, a driver who
violates this provision is subject to a penalty of one dollar per pound in
excess of the gross weight authorized by the permit.
The bill authorizes the department of transportation or the
Colorado state patrol to issue a single-use overweight or oversize state
permit or local permit on an expedited basis to help in an emergency. If
the permit is a local permit, the applicant and the executive director of the
department of transportation or the chief of the Colorado state patrol is
required to make a reasonable attempt to contact and obtain the approval
of the local authorities. If the department of transportation or the
Colorado state patrol is unable to contact or obtain the approval of the
local authority within a reasonable amount of time, the department of
transportation or the Colorado state patrol may issue the local permit. The
local permit fees must be collected and remitted to the local authorities.
