Bismarck, ND (WDAY TV) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol is being hit hard with a record demand for oversize and overweight truck permits.

Nearly 195,000 permits have been issued this year. That's more permits than all of 2008. It works out to about 1,100 permits issued every day for such trucks using roads and bridges.

The spike has led to $10.7 million in fees going into the highway fund.
