INTRODUCED

HB 1672 -- Traffic Regulations for Trucks

Sponsor:  Bennett

This bill sets the speed limit for trucks weighing over 12 tons,
including their load, at 60 miles per hour.  The Department of
Transportation will have the authority to designate truck travel
lanes for trucks weighting over 12 tons when there are 3 or more
lanes of travel in the same direction.

The commercial zone for St. Louis City is extended to include
the counties of St. Charles, Jefferson, and Franklin.

Any operator of a vehicle required to stop at a weigh station
who knowingly avoids the station is guilty of a misdemeanor, as
is any operator who knowingly avoids a weigh station by exiting
a highway and proceeding along an outer road passing a weigh
station and reentering the same highway in the same direction,
as long as the operator has actual knowledge of the weigh
station because there was a road sign.
