The Truck Weight Education and Outreach Program promotes voluntary truck weight compliance, thereby significantly reducing damage to public roads, highways, and the resulting repairs and expense due to overweight vehicles. The program offers continued training in truck weight education and enforcement and provides information outreach services through targeted presentations and web resources. It also provides technical assistance to support industry shippers, carriers, and public agency personnel on the proper application of Minnesota commercial vehicle weight laws.
