Vehicle Load Height:
No vehicle or load shall exceed a height of 14 feet measures from the surface upon which the vehicle stands (except that a double deck bus may exceed 14ft. 3 inches). Any vehicle or load which exceeds a height of 13 feet, 6 inches, shall only be operated on those highways where deemed to be safe by the owner of the vehicle.
Falling Debris / Covering of transported items:
According to the law, a vehicle may not be driven or moved on any highway unless the vehicle is so constructed, covered, or loaded as to prevent any of its contents or load other than
clear water or feathers from live birds.
Aggregate materials shall only be carried in the cargo area of a vehicle. The cargo area shall not contain any holes, cracks, or openings through which that material may escape, regardless of the degree to which the vehicle is loaded.
