APPLICABILITY OF PERFORMANCE-BASED STANDARDS FOR U.S. TRUCK SIZE AND WEIGHT REGULATIONS

This paper examines size and weight regulation in 31 industrialized countries to determine how performance standards have been employed, the positive or negative experience with the application of performance-based standards, and methods used to apply and enforce these standards. Similar to the experience of other countries, if the U.S. were to incorporate performance-based standards into federal size and weight regulations, it would probably adopt its own unique path of migration toward standards that are compatible with its own land-based trading partners.
