<quoted text>hauling 82 ton could be a problem in many different factors and I would say that Michigan has made a poor decision in allowing this kind of weight to be hauled On their roads. I don't know of any other state that allows that kind of weight to be transported unless you have special permits and proper guidelines in place. I believe, but not positive, the top speed is 45 mph and when you come to bridge, even the legal weight limit of 40 tons is usually around 15 mph, not all bridges, but some.
There was talk of allowing the legal limit being at 45 ton but that never happened.
I don't think you can let one states decision allow you to feel all trucking is damaging to the roads. The focus has to be Michigan.
You would be surprised at all the rules and regulations that are in place to keep the roads safe for tractor trailers and maybe also how little the drivers really make even though they spend days, even weeks away from their family. We are subject to random inspections at any time by the DOT, and will be shut down if they find any problem they believe is unacceptable.
Again I stress that trucking is only one of the contributing factors when it comes to road damage.
82 tons?
That's insanity. Here you would need permits....
That has to be truck, tailor, and cargo.
42 tons of coal is a typical haul for those kinds
of trucks. Not in a tandem of course. A semi.

ya I think I got that right, lost in Mississippi had said 164,000 pounds, and that was counting truck, trailer, and cargo,'which would be 82 ton. And I agree, insane!

I'm thinking the evening has finally cooled down with a nice breeze and we're sitting on the back patio soaking it up.

We are licensed to haul 80,000lbs.

When he drove a coal truck it was licensed
to haul 125.500 lbs.

So it depends on what you're driving.
