New Delaware Law Allows Vehicle Height Monitoring Systems

Posted: Updated:
NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP)- Big brother wants to keep a closer eye on big rigs in Delaware.
 
Gov. John Carney plans to sign legislation Thursday that authorizes state and local governments to install vehicle height monitoring systems. The systems use camera technology to record images of motor vehicles whose heights exceed specified size limits.
 
The legislation is aimed at making sure tractor-trailer drivers aren't using roads on which trucks are prohibited.
 
State transportation officials will have one year from enactment of the legislation to identify roads as potential candidates for the monitoring systems and conduct an analysis to determine the appropriateness of each location.
 
State officials could then install monitoring systems on state-maintained roads, and local governments could adopt ordinances authorizing monitoring systems on locally maintained roads after notifying the public.

    Amy Kyle's family has had connections to the Fenwick Island area for generations and enjoys the beach inside the state park that bears the town's name.

    But Kyle said she's concerned for the park and greater community because of discussions involving the State of Delaware and a Danish company seeking to build a transmission facility for an offshore wind farm --- in exchange for $18 million in improvements like increased parking capacity.
