A commercial vehicle equipped with qualified idle reduction technology may exceed the state's gross, total axle, or bridge formula vehicle weight limits by up to 550 pounds to compensate for the additional weight of the idle reduction technology. Upon request, vehicle operators must be able to provide written proof of idle reduction technology weight and demonstrate or certify that that the idle reduction technology is fully functional at all times.
