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

 17        column  2  shall  start  at  one dollar and two cents ($1.02) per mile and

 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

 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
