June 6 - A delegation of Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) members and staff have completed a series of successful meetings from May 28-30 with western US states regarding oversize and overweight permit issues.

SC&RA participated in a day-long meeting with the California Transportation Permit Advisory Council, discussing issues such as a potential new automated permitting system, inspection of new equipment, the state's compliance programme and the California transportation permit manual.

The next stop was New Mexico, where SC&RA and state officials agreed to form a joint working group to regularly work towards resolving a number of issues of concern to the industry, including permit turnaround time and police escorts.

Finally the delegation met with Colorado Department of Transportation officials for discussions that focused on weight issues related to dual lane trailers and trunnions.
