September 26, 2012

Truck Violations Up in 2012

September 25, 2012

More overload fees have been handed down to truck owners and operators by the North Dakota Highway Patrol so far in 2012 than in all of 2011.
The NDHP said as of Sept. 18, troopers have cited 1,295 overload violations, which amounts to $2.1 million overload fees alone, compared to $1.9 million in 2011. The agency has also found a number of safety violations as well.

Excessively heavy vehicles that exceed the state limits cause damage to roadway surfaces, which in turn causes potential hazards for motorists.
