Summary as introduced:


Overweight permits for trucks hauling coal, gravel, sand, crushed stone, or liquids produced from gas or oil wells. Allows coal-hauling vehicles with six axles to have a maximum gross weight, when loaded, of no more than 110,000 pounds; a single axle weight of no more than 24,000 pounds; a tandem axle weight of no more than 44,000 pounds; and a tri-axle weight of no more than 54,500 pounds. The bill also prohibits five-axle and six-axle vehicles from carrying loads in excess of the maximum bed size for such vehicle, and provides a formula for calculatinig "maximum bed size."

Finally, in counties that impose a severance tax on coal and gases, the bill applies certain coal truck weight limits to motor vehicles hauling liquids produced from a gas or oil well and water used for drilling and completion of a gas or oil well no more than 50 miles from origin to destination. Nothing contained in this bill authorizes any extension of weight limits provided in 46.2-1127 for operation on interstate highways. Any weight violation involving these vehicles are to be subject to the penalties authorized by 46.2-1135 (liquidated damages for weight limit violations).
