lift axel permit

Jun 11, 2019 | 22:57 1 Today my son was hauling peas and he got pulled over by the DOTs he was told that we need a permit for having lift axels on our superbees he did not get a ticket but did get a warning, I have never heard of such a thing. I am confused why we would need such a thing. Reply With Quote

Put badges and uniforms on some people in authority and it goes to their head. Reply With Quote

Heard about it... I've never seen it enforced.

Nobody does it anymore, but legally you're supposed to also buy a "3rd axle(TAC)" permit to allow you to pull 24000kg on the bridge of a super B on secondary highways and municipal grids in AB. If caught, you're only legal to be at 17,000kg on the bridge. Permit costs $5 or $15... it's never stand up as reasonable in court. Reply With Quote
Jun 11, 2019 | 23:25 6 Have had lift axles on SB for nine years, been thru the scales countless times and never heard mention of this.
A common sense revolution is overdue in this province and country. The last thing we need are more rules, more government, more taxes, more anything.
Except maybe more road repairing. Highways are so f$&king rough that after a day of grain hauling you feel like you been in an old western bar brawl. Highway 16 - busiest in SK - and it is torturous rough.
And they are going to even ask if you have a permit for lifts? Reply With Quote
