SD Codified L § 32-22-25 (2015) What's This?

32-22-25. Reduced weight maximums on specific roads--Notice--Exceeding weight limit as misdemeanor.

If, for any reason, the improved highways of this state are rendered incapable of bearing the customary traffic without undue damage, or if it is considered by the Department of Transportation, the board of county commissioners of any county, the board of supervisors of any township, or the board of trustees of any road district, that the improved highways or any section of them under their jurisdiction would be damaged or destroyed by heavy traffic by reason of thawing or excessive moisture, or for any reason, the maximum weight of the vehicle and the load shall be reduced. Notice of any restriction under this section shall be given by placing at each end of that section of highway on which the allowable weight limit is reduced and at points of intersection, as deemed necessary by the proper highway authority, signs of substantial construction which conspicuously indicate the limitations of the gross weight of the vehicle. Exceeding such weight limits is a Class 2 misdemeanor.
