Needles, announced today that equipment safety regulations pertaining to trucks have been established. Needles said that this was done in accordance with a bill passed by the 1965 Legislature (House File 634), which requires the Commissioner of Public Safety to establish this type of regulations in order to promote safety. The regulations proposed by Needles were recently approved by the Legislative Rules Review Committee and the Attorney Generals' office. The rules enacted apply only to certain carriers certified under Chapters 325, 327, and 327A of the Code and certain private carriers. Needles said that the rules apply to motor vehicles and motor trucks of a gross weight of 10,000 pounds or more operated for compensation, trailers registered for a gross weight of 8,000 pounds or more operated for compensation, semi-trailers registered for a gross weight of 24,000 pounds or more and operated for compensation, and buses used to transport more than nine (9) passengers for compensation, but not Including city transit or school buses. The Department of Public Safety worked with the Iowa Motor Truck Association in formulating meaningful and enforceable rules. The regulations cover electrical equipment and wiring specification, battery installation, braking systems, warning devices, recapped or regrooved tires, special use tires, protection against shifting cargo, towing methods, exhaust system location, floors, speedometers, rear vision mirrors, heaters and defrosting devices. The new regulations strengthen Iowa's intrastate motor carrier safety procedures, and will help mJnimize the operation of illegal carriers within the state. It will also help keep substandard vehicles and equipment off the states' roads and highways. Violation of these rules and regulations will be a misdemeanor and punishable by fines up to $100 or 30 days in jail. Pastor To Japan Junes J.
