BEFORE THE Department of transportation
OF THE STATE OF MONTANA
In the matter of the amendment of ARM 18.8.1301 pertaining to motor carrier services electronic weigh station bypass systems
NOTICE OF AMENDMENT
TO: All Concerned Persons
1. On December 21, 2018, the Department of Transportation published MAR Notice No. 18-172 pertaining to the proposed amendment of the above-stated rule at page 2479 of the 2018 Montana Administrative Register, Issue Number 24.
2. The department has amended the above-stated rule as proposed.
3. The department has thoroughly considered the comments and testimony received. A summary of the comments received and the department's responses are as follows:
COMMENT #1: One comment was received asking whether ARM 18.8.1301(3)(d) covers "triples," since they are not in excess of 110 feet.
RESPONSE #1: The proposed amendment to ARM 18.8.1301(3)(d) will allow "triples" to bypass an open weigh station when the truck driver receives a bypass signal, as the amendment only requires overlength vehicles greater than 110 feet to enter an open weighing location, and "triples" are not greater than 110 feet.
