Idleing law

State Laws And Rules

All commercial drivers must know the state laws limiting the size and weight of vehicles and loads. All commercial vehicles must stop at locations posted for CHP testing and inspection. (VC §§2802 – 2805, 2813)

Any officer, who has reason to believe that a commercial vehicle is not safely loaded or that the height, width, length, or weight of a vehicle and load is unlawful, is authorized to require the driver to stop and submit to an inspection, measurement, or weighing of the vehicle. The officer may have the driver stop in a suitable area and reload or remove any part of the load.

Any person driving a commercial vehicle over a highway or bridge illegally is liable for all damage caused to the highway or bridge. When the driver is not the owner of the vehicle but is operating it with the permission of the owner, the owner and driver may both have to pay for the damage.

Commercial diesel-fueled vehicles with a GVWR greater than 10,000 pounds are subject to the following idling restrictions effective February 1, 2005. You may not:

idle the vehicle’s primary diesel engine for greater than five minutes at any location. (For exceptions visit the California Air Resources Board website at: Subject Top Page: Commercial Idling Restrictions)
operate a diesel-fueled auxiliary power system which powers a heater, air conditioner, or any additional equipment for sleeper-berth equipped vehicles during sleeping or resting periods for greater than five minutes at any location within 100 feet of a restricted area.
Drivers are subject to both civil and criminal penalties for violations of this regulation.



Just thought everyone should see this. I hate this flippin state (California)

New York has one also, it's posted on big signs at their rest areas. Against the law to idle for more than X amount of minutes and the police do patrol it from what I heard.

times change huh fellas?

My Father used to be a OTR driver, the year I graduated HS he took me from Knoxville, TN to Los Angeles and back with several zig zags across the country in between and we never shut the engine off. About 4 1/2 weeks worth of hauling.

He had an old, (not old at the time) Cabover Kenworth wit a Cat straight 6 in it and man that thing would sing!

If there is one thing I could go back in time and do all over again that trip would be right at the top of my short list!
