Wyoming Oversize and Overweight Fines and Penalties

Subject to the limitation imposed by the axle load, no vehicle or combination of vehicles shall be operated on the interstate or national defense highways exceeding the maximum weight allowed under federal law and unless in compliance with Table I corresponding to a distance in feet between the extremes of any axle groups measured longitudinally to the nearest foot except that vehicles with two (2) consecutive sets of tandem axles may carry a gross load of thirty-six thousand (36,000) pounds each if the distance between the first and last axles of the consecutive sets of tandem axles is thirty-six (36) feet or more. If over legal size or weight, you must have a permit of permission before operating on any Wyoming State Highway.

If the hauling truck exceeds weight limitations, the truck shall be allowed to unload at its point of destination in this state if the point of destination is within one (1) mile of the truck's location when the illegal weight limitation was determined, unless an immediate threat to public safety exists. No penalty for the first violation shall be imposed, but any subsequent violation shall be subject to the penalty provisions of W.S. 31-18-805.

If you do not comply, fines start at $120.

The uniform schedule for deposits for appearances on commercial vehicle violations are established by court rule or by statutory authority includes $20.00 Court Costs + $10.00 Court Automation Fee, and a $10.00 civil legal services fee.
