    91 THOUSAND Pounds!!??

    Right now, Virginia is voting to decide whether to raise the legal truck weight to 91,000 pounds,,
    up 11,000 pounds,,,

    They feel the extra weight will cause fewer trucks to be on I81 and I95??

    What do you think!!??

    I think they're still a bunch of wussies, New York runs 117,000, and the idea there was for the same reason. More payload means less trucks, but it sure reaks havoc on the roads.

    I don’t see it as a problem. If they’re only raising the gross weight limit but not the axle weight limits, trucks will still be required to run tag axles, pushers or stingers to be legal. They just won’t have to pull permits for the gross weight overage.

    I think the 91,000 will be on 18 wheels,, because we already have extra axles, and overweight stickers.

    True, we run 102,000 on our trucks with 5 axles legally, any more than that and we would need a lift axle for the trailers.

    Even if VA raises their load limits, I suspect a significant number of trucks destined for VA start out in other parts of the country where limits are still 80,000 without adequate bridging to stretch that number. I don't see this making a huge impact on truck traffic since trucks weight is based on legality at origin as well as the pass-through states. Most states that raise this only do so for select neighboring states whom they have an agreement with to allow the same. Missouri and Kansas and Missouri and Nebraska have such agreements.

    Many are already running that or more with overweight permits, so it's just taking the permit part out of the equation.



    Farmers (around here) can get a 10% exception for harvest, with a bit more leniency for field loading, but they can still get a ticket.

    I'm assuming that the states that upped the limits are on state roads only? Pretty sure 80,000 limit is still a federal requirement.

    Actually the restrictions for overweight permits are pretty strict if you follow the rules. Interstate, US and state highways only. Before they rebuilt the bridge coming into town at work we couldn’t legally pull a full load into our yard, we did anyway, but we were crossing a weight limited bridge.

    I think Virginia is trying to get ahead of the probable coming increase in Federal numbers,,,
    If VA is not in line,, VA looses Federal funding,,,,
