/ Unsecured hay hauling #111
Interesting reading. The section regarding Special permits - shows fees could add up to a lot if needed. However, I must have missed it. I did not see a reference to loading method or securing farm loads. Only the requirement for 12' wide on non controlled highways - and also 10'. I was surprised about that. I did see a separate artcile stating that Ark. is participating a 42 state "secure you load" effort. But I got that impression that it did not pertain to husbandry loads and transport.Here is your Arkansas answer for securing hay. Go to www.ahtd.state.ar.us Click on publications and scroll down to Motor Vehicle and Traffic laws & state highway commission regulations ( ACT 300) The Act 300 book is considered the "Bible" for enforcing the traffic laws in Arkansas. In the book go to page 324 and look at statute 27-35-110 and also page 322 statute 27-35-102 (b). It says nothing about hauling hay, but does state that everything must be loaded to keep any of the load from spilling on the roadway.
