What is the purpose and scope of this administrative code chapter for vehicle size and weight?
(1) This chapter provides rules necessary for the implementation of certain sections of chapter 46.44
RCW, to include the issuance of special permits that allow vehicles, or combinations of vehicles, to move in a legal or extra-legal configuration on the public highways. The chapter also includes rules on safety and operations as they relate to the permitting of extra-legal configurations.
(2) The chapter avoids, where possible, the restating of revised code and therefore should be used in conjunction with the revised code.
(3) The chapter has been written in a "question and answer" format to enhance communication with users.
