Road Weight Limits

Ordinance # 49

AN ORDINANCE SETTING WEIGHT LIMITS FOR TRAVEL UPON TOWNSHIP ROADS WITHIN DINGMAN TOWNSHIP, ESTABLISHING PERMITS FOR OVERWEIGHT VEHICLES AND SETTING PENALTIES FOR VIOLATIONS OF THESE REGULATIONS.

The Board of Supervisors of Dingman Township, Pike County, Pennsylvania herby enact and ordain the following ordinance:

1.  The weight limit for all vehicles traveling upon township roads, within Dingman Township as described hereafter, shall be ten (10) tons, unless such vehicle shall have first obtained a permit from the township for local delivery.

2.  The Supervisors may, from time to time, post any township roads with a ten (10) ton limit when they have determined that such weight limit is necessary, because of the season or the condition of the road, to protect the road from substantial damage.

3.  Applications for permits for temporary travel of overweight vehicles may be made to the Township Supervisors.  The applications shall set forth:

a.    the reason for local travel;

b.    the proposed route of travel;

c.    the estimated weight of the vehicle and load;

d.    the date or dates of such travel.

4.  The Township, after consultation with the Township Engineer may require a bond or cash security to be posted which may offset the cost of any repairs necessary to repair damage caused by the travel of said overweight vehicles.

5.  The Township may retain the bond or security for a period of no more than ninety (90) days after the last use of the road.

6.  No permit shall be for a period of time longer than thirty (30) days.

7.  The supervisors retain the right to deny a permit when, in their opinion, the risk of substantial  or permanent damage to township roads, bridges or other improvements out weighs the need for a permit.

8.  Violations and penalties.  Any person who shall be convicted of violating or failing to comply with the provisions of this chapter before any District Magistrate shall be subject to a fine of not more than Three Hundred ($300.00) dollars, together with costs of prosecution, and in default of payment of such fine and costs, to imprisonment in the county jail for a term not to exceed thirty (30) days.  The continuation of such violation for each successive day shall constitute a separate offense, and the person or persons allowing or permitting the continuation of the violation may be punished as provided above for each separate offense.
