IMPACT ASSESSMENT OF THE REGULATION OF HEAVY TRUCK OPERATIONS

The main objective of this project was to evaluate the impact of the New York State divisible-load permit system for heavy trucks in terms of costs to society, resulting mostly from increased pavement damage, benefits to the trucking industry (primary economic benefits), and also benefits to New York State's economy (secondary economic benefits). Research objectives include investigation of seasonal variations in truck usage and estimates of costs and benefits for several lower weight limit scenarios, in order to assess the appropriateness of the present weight regime.
