Truck Weight Compliance Education and Outreach Program - 2012-2013

Principal Investigator(s):

Jim Grothaus, Former Sr Dir, Tech Assist, Center for Transportation Studies

Project summary:

The objective of the Truck Weight Education and Outreach Program is to promote voluntary truck weight compliance, thereby significantly reducing damage to public roads and highways, and the resulting repairs and expense due to overweight vehicles. The program will offer continued training in Truck Weight Compliance and incorporate expanded information outreach services through targeted presentations and web resources. In addition, technical support will be provided to industry shippers, carriers, and public agency personnel on the proper application of Minnesota Commercial Vehicle Weight Laws and enforcement policies. The Center for Transportation Studies research, education, and outreach efforts (and abstracts) are automatically displayed on the CTS website once the project is authorized, unless the project is marked to NOT be displayed on the Web.
