Holiday Restrictions Definition

What is the meaning of Holiday Restrictions Definition?

Summer and holiday shipping restrictions mainly apply to heavy and oversized cargo or vehicles more than 12.6 feet wide. Usually, holiday permits do not apply to overweight loads unless stated on the permit. As the rule of thumb, a vehicle less than 8 feet, 6 inches, and less than 14 feet in height can travel at all times without restrictions. An LVC ( Lead Vehicle Commander) is restricted from traveling anytime on Independence Day, Memorial Day, and Labor Day. However, it can travel on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.

Holiday Restrictions Definition - In The Field

Remember that these restrictions differ with different states and might keep changing with time. For example, in the state of Arizona, over-dimensional loads and vehicles more than 10 ft wide, 14.6 high, and 120 feet long are prohibited from operation on Independence Day. If the holiday falls on a Saturday, operations are closed down by noon of the preceding Friday and resume on the following Tuesday at 3.00 am. Be sure of the holiday guidelines and restrictions specific to your state.
