Any person who is convicted of a violation of any provision of this chapter or of rules adopted under section 321E.15, other than length, height, width, or weight allowed by any permit issued under this chapter shall be punished by a fine of one hundred dollars for the first conviction, two hundred fifty dollars for a second conviction within a twelve-month period, and five hundred dollars for a third conviction within a twelve-month period. The fine for violation of the length, height, width, and weight allowed by permit shall be based upon the difference between the actual length, height, width, and weight of the vehicle and load and the maximum allowable by permit and in accordance with section 321.482 for violations of length, height, or width limitations and sections 321.482 and 321.463 for violation of weight limitations.
