Truck Ordinance Amended for Better Enforcement •PDF• •Print• •E-mail•

HSSA is happy to announce the passage of amended truck ordinance 438.01: Special Load Limits.  This directly affects St. Louis Street for the better. 

The amendment will change the way the ordinance is enforced.  Instead of having to weight a truck on a scale (which the city does not have) citations can now be issued based on the registered weight. All large trucks have to register their weight with the DMV. There is a letter on all truck plates that indicates the registered weight. Any truck with a letter "J" or higher is in violation of the truck ordinance and based upon this, the police will be able to issue a $70 ticket.

As a result of the ordinance change, the city will be installing new signage at each end of the street for better wording and visibility.  HSSA will be coordinating with the police on the placement of the signs. Your input is welcome.
