What Is an Oversized Load?
An oversized load is one that may be too long, too heavy or too wide to fit within normal parameters. It may be a house that is being moved, a piece of heavy machinery, enormous pieces of conduit or anything else. The one thing an oversized load does is take up a larger than average amount of space when traveling down the road.
Are There Special Regulations for an Oversized Load?
Special permits are required for any oversized load. These are issued by the state or multiple states the truck will be passing through. Oversized loads also require flag cars as escorts in front and back of the truck. These flag cars are also responsible to ensure that vehicles do not try to pass in areas that may be too narrow to pass the truck safely.
