An ordinance unanimously passed by San Angelo City Council Tuesday may set fines and a misdemeanor for "oversize loads" driving through areas near Central High School.
The ordinance would restrict loads exceeding 12-foot maximum width and/or a 95-foot maximum length from the junction of US-67 main lanes and frontage roads from Jefferson Street to Bryant Boulevard, Monday through Friday during peak hours, according to the city ordinance.
"It's a safety issue and it's just for peak times, travel times for the kids at Central High School," Shane Kelton, operations director for the city of San Angelo, said.
Any person, firm or corporation violating the ordinance may be guilty of a misdemeanor and would be subject to a fine.
According to the ordinance, it would take effect from and after the date of its passage.
