Makes technical corrections to House Bill 2712, which took effect in January 2012 and changed Oregon laws governing fines in criminal proceedings.
House Bill 4167 includes an amendment of ORS 818.430
and the Schedule III penalties for weight violations exceeding more than 10,000 pounds of the posted limits of a bridge or overhead structure to make it a fine of $500 plus 30 cents per pound of excess weight. House Bill 2712 had made this particular violation a Class C misdemeanor with a $1,250 fine and required appearance in court.
NOTE: ODOT Motor Carrier Transportation Division enforcement officers issue citations for specific motor carrier-related violations, including truck size and weight violations, but ODOT receives no part of the fines collected. Revenue from citations is split between circuit courts, justice courts, or municipal courts, various law enforcement agencies, county treasuries, and the Oregon Department of Revenue.
