SPECIAL NOTES

Recent Changes - The trucking industry will be able to continue using four-axle semi-trailers, which are not equipped with a self-steer axle, for another five years.

NB-5 08/14 SC&RA Oversize/Overweight Permit Manual Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Claude Williams said current regulations call for use of these semi-trailers to be discontinued on Dec. 31, 2014. This deadline will now be extended to May 31, 2020.

After 2014, a special permit will be required to continue operating a truck tractor and quadrem axle semitrailer without a self-steer axle. Permits will only be available for trailers with a model year of 2014 or earlier.

Truckers wishing to operate these trailers after Dec. 31 will need to contact the permit office at 506-453or by email at special.permits@gnb.ca The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association is pleased to publish this Oversize/ Overweight Permit Manual. Each state analysis includes information in a standardized format: contact, legal limits, special permit limits, general restrictions, types of permits available, fees, escort needs, fines, and restricted travel areas. Telephone numbers, locations, and hours of operation are listed for ports of entry and permit branches. However, readers are always advised to check with the state offices on current laws and procedures. This project could not have been completed without the advice and consultation of many state officials. We thank all of those who provided permit manuals, maps, laws, regulations, and various other forms of documentation.

Legal Notice This SC&RA Oversize/Overweight Permit Manual is intended only to provide concise, easily read information, useful in planning movements of overdimensional and overweight loads. This Permit Manual is not intended to be an accurate summary of all the applicable laws and regulations. Users of the Permit Manual should confirm the information contained herein before dispatching vehicles and loads. The SC&RA cautions Permit Manual users that state laws and regulations are subject to change without notice, and that some time elapses between the effective date of such changes and the amendment of the Permit Manual to reflect those changes. The SC&RA assumes no responsibility for accident, injury, loss or claim, penalties or any other damage resulting from reliance on the contents of this Permit Manual.
