  ble load permits


  Section 1. Paragraph (d) of subdivision 15 of section 385 of the vehi-
cle and traffic law, as amended by section 3 of part C of chapter 59  of
the laws of 2004, is amended to read as follows:
  (d)  (I)  Except during storms, floods, fires or other public emergen-
cies, no such permit may be issued to include a towing operation involv-
ing more than two vehicles except three vehicle combinations  consisting
of  a  tractor,  semitrailer  and  trailer or a tractor and two trailers
within legal weight and width limits proceeding to or from any  qualify-
ing highway or access highway. Every such permit may designate the route
to  be traversed and contain any other restrictions or conditions deemed
necessary by the issuing authority. Every such permit shall  be  carried
on the vehicle to which it refers and shall be open to the inspection of
any  peace  officer,  acting  pursuant  to his special duties, or police
officer, or any other officer or employee  authorized  to  enforce  this
section.  All permits issued shall be revocable by the authority issuing
them at the discretion of the authority without a hearing or the  neces-
sity  of  showing  cause.  Except  for  a vehicle having a maximum gross
weight not exceeding eighty thousand pounds without regard to  any  axle
weight  limitation  set  forth herein or the maximum gross weight estab-
lished by the formula commonly referred to as the bridge formula as  set
forth in subdivision ten of this section and except for state or munici-
pally-owned  single vehicles engaged in snow and ice control operations,
or designed or fitted for snow and ice control operations while  engaged
in  other public works operations on public highways which do not exceed
the weight limits contained in subdivision seventeen-a of this  section,
