How far can a ladder or lumber stick out from the rear of a vehicle?

How far can something like a ladder or lumber stick out from the back/rear of my car, truck, or vehicle?

Have you ever wondered what the law is in your state concerning protrusions from a vehicle? Like when you’re hauling a ladder or lumber for that new project. Most states have different rules so it’s important for you to not only have the red flag but to know the limitations of protrusion lengths your state legally permits. If you have something sticking out too far from your car or truck you can be issued a citation or worse, a fine. We’ll go over the basics of having something protruding from the front or back of your vehicle and what the limitations are in your state.

Over loaded van with lumber on top, How much is the legal limit? Find out what your state laws are below. Photo credit.

Let’s first go over some of the basics.

Properly securing your item.

One of the more important things here is to ensure you don’t lose whatever you intend to move. This is why properly securing your long item to the car or truck you intend on transporting it on. When securing lighter items we suggest using a small rope as long as you can tie a good knot. If you’re not the greatest with knots consider double tieing in if this is the only option you have. For heavy items, we suggest using ratchet straps to secure your long item (lumber, poles, pipe, ladders, etc) when possible. We do not recommend using bungee cords for securing anything under any circumstances. They are too stretchy and simply can’t be counted on 100%. The last thing you need is an insurance claim.

Red flag rules.

Do I have to tie a red flag on anything that sticks out of the back or front of my vehicle? The rule of thumb on this is if it sticks out more than 3 feet, yes. It doesn’t matter if it extends 3 feet from the front bumper or 3 feet from the rear bumper down low, or on top on the hood, or in racks. If it protrudes more than 3 feet in either direction, you must attach a red-colored warning flag to each protruding end.

What the laws say about objects protruding from the front or rear of vehicles.

Considering the safety of other motorists as well as public property, there are various laws in place to limit how far an item can overhang or protrude the rear end of vehicles. They also cover properly marking the item being transported at each end. As mentioned earlier if you choose not to properly flag or mark the protrusion you could be subject to a ticket or a fine or both. The USDOT has federal regulations that cover this area of the law. It basically says that if you have something protruding over 3 feet in the front and/or 4 feet from the rear of the car or truck it must be properly marked with a red or orange safety flag. It should be noted that objects protruding more than 4 inches from the sides of a vehicle must be properly marked as well.

Proper marking of objects protruding from the front or rear of your vehicle.

During daylight hours. During daylight hours protrusions can be marked with a red or orange safety/warning colored flag. Flags must be a minimum of 18 inches square.

During nighttime hours. During the hours of darkness, objects protruding from vehicles must be illuminated with a red lamp placed at the far rear extreme of the item protruding from the rear.

Examples of items that may be too long for your car or truck.

  • Lumber
  • Poles
  • Ladders
  • Pipe
  • Building materials
  • Kayaks
  • Canoes
  • Surfboards
  • Nursery stock
  •  

    Considering the USDOT doesn’t have authority on state and local roads, let’s look at the individual state laws on items sticking out (protruding) from vehicles.

    Maximum width on interstates, highways, roads. Commercial or private.

    What are the maximum legal length, width, height, and weight limits allowed on roads, highways, or Interstates?

    The legal maximum length, width, height, and weight permitted to travel, tow, or transport on local roads, highways, or Interstates in the United States and Canada are as follows.

    Maximum legal limits Standard Metric
    Length: 65 feet. 19.8 meters.
    Width: 8 feet, 6 inches. 2.6 meters.
    Height: 13 feet, 6 inches. 4.1 meters.
    Weight: 80,000 pounds. 36,287 kilograms.
    Notes: Always verify state/provincial legal limits prior to movement/transport.

    These rules pertain to single personal vehicles (towed or otherwise), commercial motor vehicles including semi-tractors, trailers, and buses. Mirrors and certain safety devices (such as flags, etc.) may be permitted to protrude a “reasonable” distance further. Always obtain official consultation about any protrusion(s) you may have by contacting your state/provincial DOT office prior to any movement. Local city/county roads may vary from the maximum length/width/height/weight limits governed by federal guidelines.

    Exceptions:

    Within the state of Hawaii commercial motor vehicles are permitted the following maximum width on all highways (unless otherwise posted on the road by sign): Standard: 9 feet or 108 inches. Metric: 2.74 meters or 274 centimeters.

    These roads usually have signs posted that display the maximum legal width permitted without obtaining a special travel permit. You should always inquire about the maximum widths permitted by the governing body of the particular road prior to traveling on it in order to prevent a fine or worse. In some situations depending on the width of the vehicle or shipment size, a route survey will be required prior to being granted permission to travel.

    Maximum width allowed.

    Maximum width laws are created to protect motorists and public assets. Know the maximums.

    The importance of setting maximum widths for vehicles.

    Safety and protection of motorists and public property are the primary reasons regulations have been set for maximum vehicle length/width/height/weight limitations.

    A standard was required based on the dimensions of the existing roads that would protect any/all persons operating a motor vehicle on highways, roads, and Interstates. It should be noted public property is placed at risk for damage as well. Should motorists accidentally hit one of the many existing obstructions such as guard rails, signs, traffic signal poles, etc. liability while ultimately is the motorists, if it is not reported the state is required to repair damages which then is passed on to the taxpayers in both the USA and Canada. So maximum widths were created to protect both human lives but public property as well.

    Maximum width allowed

    Noteworthy information:

    “Federal width limits do not apply to special mobile equipment, which consists of self-propelled vehicles not designed or used primarily for the transportation of persons or property and only incidentally moved over the highways. Special mobile equipment includes the following, when moving under their own power: military or farm equipment; instruments of husbandry; road construction or maintenance machinery; and emergency apparatus, including police and fire emergency equipment. Federal rules do not require States to issue overwidth permits before allowing the operation of special mobile equipment. However, if States wish to allow other vehicles more than 102 inches wide (i.e. non-special mobile equipment) to operate on the NN, then States must issue special overwidth permits.” Reference Credit: FHWA website.

    History:

    “The Federal Government first enacted size regulations for CMVs with the passage of the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956. This Act provided a maximum vehicle width of 96 inches (2.44 meters) on the Interstate highway system. Subsequently, the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1976 increased the allowable width for buses to 102 inches (2.6 meters). The Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) of 1982 extended the same width requirement of 102 inches to commercial trucks. At the same time, the STAA expanded the highway network on which the Federal width provision applied from the Interstate to the National Network (NN) of highways.” Reference Credit: FHWA website.

    Width:  8 feet and 6 inches.

    Notes: For documentation refer to Nebraska legal limitations for transport.

    Routine oversize and heavy-haul trucking permits.

    These maximum dimensions/weights are considered routine oversize or heavy-haul trucking permits in Texas:

    Length: Up to 120 feet long is routine. Anything over will be assessed but limits are relaxed.

    Width: Figure up to 14 feet as a routine permit.  They are strict on width and over 14 feet wide is going to be looked at as superload unless it’s a light load. Case-by-case but if you are heavy you may need approval from Lincoln, NE (up to 5 days processing times).
    Height: Up to 14 feet and  6 inches is considered routine and some routes may require a high pole. If you are over 16’ feet a high pole is mandatory.

    Nebraska superloads.

    Do I need a trucking permit? Legal load limits.

    Legal Loads:
    Length: Trailer length maximum is 59 feet. The overall combined length maximum is 65 feet.
    Width: 8 feet, 6 inches wide maximum.
    Height: 14 feet tall maximum.
    Weight: 80,000 pounds overall GVW, 20,000 pounds on single axles, 34,000 pounds on tandem axles, and 42,000 pounds on tridem axles.
    Overhang: 4 feet in the rear and 2 feet in the front maximum.

    Routine oversize and heavy-haul trucking permits.

    These maximum dimensions/weights are considered routine oversize or heavy-haul trucking permits in Texas:

    Length: Up to 180 feet long or see the superload section.
    Width:  20 feet wide on “routine” permits (Go Texas!) however only 16 feet wide on the interstates.
    Height: 18 feet and 11 inches maximum for routine oversize trucking permits on state highways. Anything over this height is going to require a route survey.
    Weight: up to 240,000 pounds for routine heavy haul trucking permits however if the shipment is in excess of 200,000 pounds with less than 95 feet of axle spacings you will have to apply for a heavy haul superload trucking permit. On single axles: 25,000 pounds. Tandem axles: 46,000 pounds. Tridum axles: 60,000 pounds and quadem axles: 63,000 pounds (confirmed May 31, 2018). 5 axles 73,260 pounds. Trunnion axles 54,000 pounds. On restricted routes: Single: 22,500 pounds, tandem: 41,400 pounds, tridum: 54,000 pounds, quad: 63,000 pounds, 5 axles 73,260 pounds, trunnion: 54,000 pounds. 5 axels gross weight 105,000, 6 axels: 119,000, 7 axles: 129,000 lbs, 8 axles depends on your axle configurations.
    Overhang: Go again Texas DOT!  The front overhang maximum is 25′ and the rear overhang maximum is 30′ in length for routine Texas oversize trucking permits.  Nice job folks!
    Notes: If over 125 feet in length, 20 feet wide, or 18 feet and 11 inches tall you will be required to have a route inspection. A flatbed trailer can not be used for a shipment that is considered a “wide-load” and an “over-height” load. Your permit will be rejected and you will lose your payment. If a shipment has 2 different oversize dimensions (ie; long and wide or wide and tall), then it automatically will be required to have 2 pilot cars or escort vehicles.

    Texas superloads.

    To keep this simple any shipment that exceeds the above dimensions/weights in the “Routine” section above will more than likely be classified as a superload shipment in the state of Texas. Superload permits issued in the state of Texas usually take at minimum 2 weeks time to be approved.

    Legal travel times for oversize and heavy-haul loads.

    Travel times and restrictions for heavy-haul and oversize loads:

    One half-hour before sunrise and one-half hour after sunset is considered daylight time. Nighttime travel is permitted in the state of Texas if the shipment is less than 100 feet long or 10 wide on the Interstate highways only. If the shipment is ONLY overweight it may travel at night on any roads.  Weekend travel is permitted.  You can travel on some holidays but there are some limits;  if the length is in excess of 110′ long, height is in excess of 16′ or width in excess of 14′ you may NOT travel on the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

    The Texas state DOT permit office is closed on these days as well.  Texas does have quite a few travel time curfews in high-density traffic areas so be sure to refer to your permit. These typically range from 6-9 am and 3-6 pm (example only).  Each permit issued by the Texas DOT will specifically state exactly what the curfew law is. No Texas state heavy haul or oversize trucking permit is valid without the specific curfew restrictions attached to it.

    Lights, safety flags and warning signs for heavy haul and oversize loads.

    Required marking, safety flags, warning signs for heavy haul and oversize loads:

    When transporting heavy haul and oversize loads the tractor-trailer unit must have its low beam headlights turned on at all times. Any shipment that extends from either side of the actual trailer width requires red or orange fluorescent warning flags that are no less than 16 inches square as well as red lights/lamps. If you are transporting anything that has a rear overhang in excess of 4 feet from the rear of the trailer you will be required to place two red lamps at each rear extreme corner. Red lights must be visible from a minimum distance of 500 feet. Any shipment over 8 feet and 6 inches wide will require a strobe and red lighting is an addition to warning flags. Trucks must have either 1 strobing amber light with a minimum base size of 8 inches or 2 simultaneous flashing amber lights mounted on the roof of the power unit. Signs must be applicable to the shipment being moved such as “oversize load”, “long load”, etc. Signs must be a minimum of 5 feet in width but no wider than 7 feet with a yellow background and black letters a minimum of 8 inches tall.

    When pilot cars or escort vehciles are required.

    Heavy-haul or oversize loads may be required to be accompanied by an escort vehicle or pilot car if:

    Length: If a shipment is over 110′ in length and up to 125′ you will need 1 pilot car in the rear.  Over 125′ in length requires 1 pilot car or escort vehicle in the front and 1 on the rear.
    Width: Shipments 14 feet to 16 feet wide will require 1 pilot car vehicle in front on a 2 lane road and 1 on the rear on a 4 lane road.  If a shipment is in excess of 16 feet, 1 front and 1 rear pilot car or escort vehicle will be required on all shipments on all roads and highways.
    Height: If the height of the load exceeds 17′ a front high pole car is required. If the shipment is over 18′ in height you will be required to have 1 high pole and 1 rear escort.
    Weight: If the shipment is able to maintain minimum speeds no escort vehicle is required.
    Overhang: Front overhang up to 20 feet on some 2 land roads will require 1 pilot car or escort vehicle in the front.  On a 4 lane front overhang, up to 25 feet requires 1 pilot car (escort) on the rear.  Rear overhang; over 20 feet but not more than 30 feet requires one pilot car (escort) on the rear of shipment. If over 30 feet of overhang 2 pilot cars or escort vehicles will be required and you will need to get special approval for the permit to be issued.

    Pilot cars/escort vehicle certifications and requirements.

    Pilot car or escort vehicle mandatory operator certifications and vehicle requirements:

    At the date of this publish (06/20/18) there are no certifications required by the state of Texas for pilot car or escort vehicle operators. Vehicle requirements: All pilot cars/escort vehicles must display either both bumpers or 1 roof-mounted “OVERSIZE LOAD” or “WIDELOAD” sign (whichever is applicable) visible from both the front and rear of the vehicle and only displayed while working. The sign must be at least 5′ long but no greater than 7′ and 12″ in height but no greater than 18″ in height, yellow in color with black letters no less than 8″ in height but no more than 10″ in height and lettering must be a minimum of 1.4″ in width.  Vehicle must be equipped with 2 horizontally mounted rotating (if rotating 8″ base is required) (or strobe) amber-colored flashing or strobe light which must be visible from a 360-degree angle from a minimum of 500 feet. Vehicles must be equipped with a CB radio or 2-way communication device and be in constant communication with all parties assigned to the movement.

    It is only our express opinion that pilot cars also have a minimum of the additional items but not required:  2 – 5 pound fire extinguishers type A, B, and C, a paddle sign with the word “STOP” on one side and “SLOW” on the other with dimensions of no less than 18″ in diameter with a minimum of 6″ letters.
