SUBPART B. SPECIAL PERMITS

§387. Special permits

A. No vehicle or combination of vehicles that does not meet the requirements of R.S.

32:380 through 386 shall use the public highways of this state without first obtaining a

special permit from the department in addition to any other special permit which may be

required from any other agency or department of the state or a political subdivision, and the

special permit herein provided for shall be issued at the discretion of the secretary. If a

permit issued pursuant to Subsection B of this Section authorizes a vehicle to operate on

interstate highways, the secretary may allow the vehicle to operate on interstate highways at

night if requested by the owner or operator.

B.(1) The secretary may issue a special permit for the operation of vehicles or

combination thereof having dimensions or weights in excess of the limits imposed by R.S.

32:380 through 386 if the shipment is not readily divided, broken, or dismantled, or the

operation of such vehicles is otherwise prohibited by law, however, if the parts which have

been divided, broken or dismantled from the shipment weight in the aggregate of five

hundred pounds, or less, then the shipment shall be considered as indivisible. Provided

further, however, that the secretary may issue special overwidth permits for vehicles

transporting pipe. In the exercise of his discretion, the secretary shall consider the following

factors, as well as any other circumstances existing in the particular case:

(a) There is a vital and exceptional economic necessity therefor;

(b) The existence of a real necessity of transportation by public roads; or,

(c) The secretary considers the best interest of the state requires the issuance of the

permit.

(2) Subject to the provisions of Paragraphs (3) and (4) of this Subsection, the

secretary may issue special permits to permit movement along the interstate highway system

within Louisiana of vehicles and loads up to sixteen feet in width. The request for a permit

may be denied, if the secretary determines that the vehicle or load traveling along the

proposed route would endanger the public due to construction, highway conditions, or traffic

along the proposed route. Any vehicle traveling under a special permit issued pursuant to

the provisions of this Paragraph shall not exceed a speed of fifty-five miles per hour.

(3)(a) When an application for a special permit is made, the secretary may require

the special permit applicant to supply any information the secretary deems necessary for the

protection of the interests of the state, the state highway system, and the public.

(b) Due to concurrent authority between the Department of Transportation and

Development and the Department of Public Safety and Corrections for the enforcement of

weight, size, and measurement laws and regulations, the secretary shall provide computer

terminal access to information pertaining to all special permits to the Department of Public

Safety and Corrections. All costs related to the acquisition of such access shall be incurred

by the Department of Public Safety and Corrections.

(c) Due to concurrent authority between the Department of Transportation and

Development and the Department of Public Safety and Corrections for the enforcement of

weight, size, and measurement laws and regulations, the secretary of the Department of

Public Safety and Corrections shall provide computer access to information pertaining to all

special permits to the Department of Transportation and Development. All costs related to

the acquisition of such access shall be incurred by the Department of Transportation and

Development.

(4) The secretary may impose conditions upon the issuance of a special permit and

may impose requirements upon its use, including but not restricted to the use of additional

axles, so as to require that the axle weight conform as closely as possible to the weights

provided in R.S. 32:386; the routing over the highways of the shipment under the special

permit; the date, time of day, and speed limit; the furnishing of a bond with good and solvent

surety to protect the state, the department, and all political corporations and subdivisions of

the state from all liability and damage resulting from the use of such permit; the

accompaniment of the vehicle and shipment by a proper escort, all at the expense of the

permittee; and such other conditions or requirements as the secretary deems necessary and

proper. When state police vehicles are required as a proper escort, there shall be a charge for

the use thereof, and the secretary of the Department of Public Safety shall determine the fees

charged for the use of the state police vehicles so used. Such charge shall be based on the

mileage of the escort with a minimum charge of twenty-five dollars. Any fees charged in

excess of twenty-five dollars shall be adopted pursuant to R.S. 49:951, et seq.

(5) An overweight special permit shall be issued for the gross weight of the vehicle

or combination of vehicles.

(6) The secretary may issue special permits to those vehicles transporting hay due

to a disaster or emergency, including but not limited to severe and extended drought

conditions. The secretary may promulgate the rules and regulations in accordance with the

Administrative Procedure Act as may be necessary to implement the provisions of this

Paragraph.

C.(1) The secretary may issue an annual special permit for the operation of those

vehicles which are of such a particular design that they do not comply with R.S. 32:386.

This type of annual special permit shall be issued only if:

(a) The vehicles are nonload carrying, primarily operate off the road and only

occasionally use the state maintained highway system, or,

permit.

Subsection B of this Section, the secretary may issue special permits he finds essential and

in the best interest of the state by reason of an emergency situation, unusual circumstances,

natural catastrophes, or disasters affecting the transportation on the highways of the state of
