  7    Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
  8        SECTION  1.  That  Section  49-1004,  Idaho Code, as amended by Section 1,
  9    Senate Bill No.  1138,  as  enacted  by  the  First  Regular  Session  of  the
 10    Fifty-ninth  Idaho  Legislature, be, and the same is hereby amended to read as

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

 39    cles and the total gross weight.

 15        increase four cents (4¢) per mile for each additional two thousand (2,000)
 16        pound  increment  up  to the weight indicated in column 2. Permit fees for
 17        column 2 shall start at one dollar and two  cents  ($1.02)  per  mile  and
 18        increase  seven  cents  (7¢)  per  mile  for  each additional two thousand
 19        (2,000) pound increment.
 20        (c)  Vehicles operating at weights less than the starting weights per axle
 21        configuration listed in column 1 shall be  charged  four  cents  (4¢)  per
 22        mile.
 23        (d)  For  vehicles  operating with axles wider than eight (8) feet six (6)

 25        reduced  by the board or other proper authority having jurisdiction over a
 26        highway.
 27        (3)  It shall be unlawful for any person to violate, or to cause or permit
 28    to be violated, the limitations or conditions  of  special  permits  and   any
 29    violation shall be deemed for all purposes to be a violation of the provisions
 30    of this chapter.
 31        (4)  An  annual  special  pilot project route permit authorizing travel on
 32    pilot project routes shall be issued by the board or may, in  its  discretion,
 33    be  issued  by  a local public highway agency for operation of vehicles with a
 34    legal maximum gross weight of at least one hundred five thousand five  hundred
 35    one  (105,501)  pounds  but  not  exceeding  one  hundred twenty-nine thousand
 36    (129,000) pounds. Such pilot project  routes  on  nonstate  and  noninterstate
 37    highways shall be determined by the local highway agency for those roads under
