(C) Notwithstanding compliance with paragraph (B) of this rule, the transportation or shipment on the turnpike of radioactive materials or devises shall require a special permit from the commission. All applications for such permits shall be made in writing addressed to the executive director at least thirty days prior to the date of the proposed transportation or shipment and shall provide, to the satisfaction of the commission, that the shipment shall comply in all respects with the provisions of applicable federal statutes and regulations of the United States department of transportation.
