     8  tolls  therefor,  provided, however, that such exemption shall not apply
     9  to trips made by vehicles that are used for commercial purposes.  Appli-
    10  cation for such toll exemption shall be made in such manner as shall  be

    15  repeal  of  any  rule  or regulation necessary for the implementation of
    16  this act on its effective date are authorized to be made  and  completed
    17  on or before such effective date.
