Truck-weight education sessions coming
Farm truck owners and operators can attend a free upcoming Truck-Weight Education and Outreach Program in one of several locations throughout the state.
The North Dakota Truck-Weight Education and Outreach Program addresses concerns from state, county, city and township transportation authorities regarding damage from heavy trucks. Explanations are provided which explain road weights during various times of the year. The program promotes voluntary truck-weight compliance, to reduce damage to public roads and highways from overweight vehicles. The goal is to provide information and explanations to attendees on how to haul the most legal weight, without violating the truck-weight laws. How you configure your truck, with proper axle spacing and tire size makes a difference.
The workshops begin on November 14 in Mandan and run through December 19 in Devils Lake. For a full listing of events, please go to: Truck-Weight Education and Outreach.
