An Act To Amend Title 21 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Size And Weight Of Vehicles And Loads.

Abstract

Section 4513 of Title 21 authorizes the installation and use of monitoring systems to assist in the enforcement of applicable law regarding motor vehicle use of roadways that the Department of Transportation (“DelDOT”) has determined are not suitable for certain commercial or other truck traffic. DelDOT’s determination of which roadways is based on myriad reasons, including vehicle height, weight, or size. This Act renames the monitoring systems to more accurately reflect their purpose. It also clarifies the following: - The purpose of the monitoring system is to assist in enforcing restrictions of trucks on certain roadways that are not suitable for certain commercial or other truck traffic. - Counties and municipalities are authorized to install monitoring systems. - The county or municipality that authorizes the installation of a monitoring system is responsible for paying or obtaining the funds for payment of the installation, use, maintenance, or other costs associated with the system. This Act also makes technical changes to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
