 12    owner or operator of any vehicle allowing vehicles or loads having  a  greater
 13    weight  or  size  than permitted by law to be moved or carried over and on the
 14    highways and bridges.
 15        (a)  Special permits shall be in writing and may limit the time of use and
 16        operation over the particular highways and bridges which may be  traversed
 17        and  may  contain  any  special  conditions and require any undertaking or
 18        other security as the board or other proper authority  shall  deem  to  be
 19        necessary  to  protect  the  highways  and bridges from injury, or provide
 20        indemnity for any injury to highways and bridges or to persons or property
 21        resulting from such operation.
 22        (b)  The owner or operator of an  overweight  or  oversize  vehicle  shall
 23        obtain  a  permit,  or  shall  establish  intent  to  obtain  a  permit by
 24        contacting a permit office and receiving a permit number before moving the
 25        vehicle on the highways.
 26        (c)  All special permits or evidence of intent to obtain a permit,   shall
 27        be  carried  in  the vehicles to which they refer and shall upon demand be

 10        (b)  Permit  fees for column 1 shall start at four cents (4¢) per mile and
 11        increase four cents (4¢) per mile for each additional two thousand (2,000)
 12        pound increment up to the weight indicated in column 2.  Permit  fees  for
 13        column  2  shall  start  at  one dollar and two cents ($1.02) per mile and

 21        reduced by the board or other proper authority having jurisdiction over  a
 22        highway.
 23        (3)  It shall be unlawful for any person to violate, or to cause or permit
 24    to  be  violated,  the  limitations  or conditions of special permits and  any
 25    violation shall be deemed for all purposes to be a violation of the provisions
 26    of this chapter.
 27        (4)  An annual special pilot project route permit  authorizing  travel  on
 28    pilot  project  routes shall be issued by the board or may, in its discretion,
 29    be issued by a local public highway agency for operation of  vehicles  with  a
 30    legal  maximum gross weight of at least one hundred five thousand five hundred

 32    (129,000)  pounds.  Such  pilot  project  routes on nonstate and noninterstate
 33    highways shall be determined by the local highway agency for those roads under
