29 for permits and fee payment. Projecting the consequences of changes in the limits requires models or assumptions about how these features of the regulations influence the decisions of shippers, truck operators, and vehicle manufacturers. For example, coupling changes in highway user fees and taxes with changes in limits to ensure that operators of new trucks paid the costs of providing facilities for them would greatly alter the public costs and benefits of changes in the limits. Although the 1981 and 2000 USDOT truck size and weight studies were conducted in conjunction with highway cost allocation studies, they did not estimate how changes in user fees would affect their impact estimates. Adoption of performance-based standards (see candidate safety research Topic 8 in Box 8) is another example of a prominent policy option that was not considered in past USDOT truck size and weight studies and will require special research to evaluate.

TRB's Truck Size and Weight Limits Research Plan Committee has issued an interim letter report that explores the development of a research plan to reduce uncertainties in estimates of the impacts of changes in truck size and weight limits. The report summarizes the research recommendations of past truck size and weight limit studies, presents lists of candidate research problem statement topics, and identifies criteria for deciding the priority of topics for inclusion in the requested research plan, which will be presented in a final Academies report in fall 2018.
