L. 974, No. 89) (75 Pa.C.S. §  4902 (relating to restrictions on use of highways and bridges)).

 (b)  This chapter only applies to Chapter 189 and does not apply to roads and bridges posted under Chapters 191 and 193 (relating to authorization to use bridges posted due to condition of bridge; and authorization to use highways posted due to traffic conditions).

 (c)  The policies and procedures in this chapter are intended to supplement existing requirements. Nothing in this chapter will affect regulatory requirements. This chapter is not an adjudication or a regulation. This chapter establishes the framework within which the Department will exercise its administrative discretion. The Department reserves the discretion to deviate from this chapter if circumstances warrant.

 (d)  Letters of Local Determination do not apply to local authorities unless the local authority elects to enact an ordinance adopting the policies and procedures as such.
