    Wonder if the maximum 2/3 wheelbase limit or 4' max overhang regulations apply?

    Dodge Maxivans were the staple for the carpet industry for a long time...

    Some of the jobbers used shorter wheelbase vehicles and would get cited for exceeding the California overhang limits... a 7' bed with a 12' roll was common enough.

    35410. The load shall not extend to the rear more than two-thirds of the wheelbase.

    And as to the red flag, we get this:

    LAMP OR FLAG ON PROJECTIONS:
    Per CVC Section 24604, whenever the load upon any vehicle extends, or whenever any integral part of any vehicle projects, to the rear four feet or more beyond the rear of the vehicle, as measured from the taillamps, there shall be displayed at the extreme end of the load or projecting part of the vehicle:

    a solid red or fluorescent orange flag or cloth not less than 12 inches square, or
    during darkness, in addition to the required taillamp, two red lights with a bulb rated not in excess of six candlepower plainly visible from a distance of at least 500 feet to the sides and rear.

    Note the "any vehicle" in that one. I suppose that means pickups too.

    The rating has a maximum level of brightness. Does that mean I can hang a lantern thats not lit from a load?

    I don't know... probably stems from the time when gas and oil lamps were common on vehicles... up to about 1915... I have several vehicles with only carbide or oil lamps...

    Perhaps we should pass the hat so that you can afford to upgrade?

    Yep... carbide is getting hard to get... something about home land security?

    This means home before dark if I want "Good" lights... the oil lamps just don't cut it.

    As long as its "plainly visible from a distance of at least 500 feet to the sides and rear"

    A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot.

    My favorite are white or gray cars driving during heavy rain or snow storms without lights- almost invisible at times, but I [kinda] see them all the time- usually as a near-miss when they slide by me- seems like the ability to retain traction is coupled with the light switch for some of them...

    I see that all the time around here as well. I'm guessing they can see just fine to drive, and the other cars with their lights on, so it doesn't occur to them that they are nearly invisible behind that curtain of spray being thrown up by the other vehicles.
