Fines for oversize violations in Massachusetts

In Massachusetts, maximum truck laws are enforced through fines, with no specific provisions for prison terms regarding maximum weight violations. The penalties for weight violations are as follows:

  • First offense: $35 fine plus a $5 safety surcharge.

  • Second offense: $75 fine plus a $5 safety surcharge.

  • Third offense: $150 fine plus a $5 safety surcharge.

Additionally, under c90 §19A, weight violations with irreducible loads incur a fine of $10 per thousand pounds (or fraction thereof) overweight, not exceeding $500.

Escort vehicle requirements can vary widely from state to state, encompassing mandatory driver qualifications, training, certifications, vehicle weights, mandatory signage, flags, lighting specifications, essential onboard equipment, and other factors. The SafeGuard team is well-equipped to furnish you with comprehensive information on any additional requirements specific to your designated route.
