Summary as introduced:
Overweight vehicles. Provides for civil penalties for repeat violations of vehicle weight limits: $1,000 for a second offense within a 12-month period, $5,000 for a third offense within a 12-month period, and $10,000 for a fourth or subsequent offense within a 12-month period. These penalties are in addition to all other penalties and fees imposed or assessed for such violations, and may be assessed by the court against the operator of the vehicle, the owner or lessee of the vehicle, or the owner or consignor of the good being shipped, as the interests of justice may appear. The bill also provides for transmission to the Department of Motor Vehicles of records or abstracts of convictions for overweight violations so as to create a record of convictions that courts can use in assessing the additional penalties for repeat violations.
