For more information on the delivery and pickup exemption, click on the CVC 35700 - 35722 and read Sections 35701, 35703, 35711, 35714, 35715 (Nevada County), 35715.1 (Tuolumne County), and 35720.
WHICH RESTRICTIONS WERE ADOPTED PURSUANT TO SECTION 35701?
Section 35701 first appeared in the California Vehicle Code in 1959. Section 35701 allows commercial vehicle restrictions on the basis of weight. However, other sections also allow for weight restrictions. At this time, until further research is completed, Caltrans makes no guarantee as to which of the special weight restrictions were adopted pursuant to Section 35701.
