Adirondack case guy said: (quoted from post at 06:31:18 12/06/12) In NY, Dealers have to comply with all overwidth laws such as "certified escort car", flags, lights, etc. Just the same as a modular home hauler, or comercial hauler. That being said, farmers are exempt, from these laws during daylight hrs.

Loren, the Acg.

Actually , in NY it depends on on exactly what they are doing. IIRC, farm dealers have an exemption up to 14 foot wide. It has to be flagged and you need the signs, but no Special Hauling Permit. Something like that. Farmers aren't exempt altogether hauling with a truck, they get the same treatment as the dealer, but with a tractor it's different. It's been almost 4 years since I retired now and the memory is getting foggy.

As far as most of this goes, you need to look at your specific states rules for hauling oversized loads. What goes in NY may not go in Va or Ut, or Ill. And what goes in those states might be completely illegal in another. And then there's the Federal DOT rules once you get out side the farm exemption distance.

Looking at Dalets post I think the OP probably can get the ticket dismissed. All it should take is showing the proper sections to the ADA of Judge. It has little to do with "cops trying to make a name for themselves" and everything to do with a lack of training. I don;t know how many times I had to jump on young Troopers that wanted to go write a farmer on an ATV for no tags and helmet. Had to refer them to the correct section that ID's a farmers ATV as an "implement of husbandry" when he was doing farm work with it. Or when they'd try an write someone up for an Hours of Service violation when they didn't even need a log book. The common misconception is that they are out to make a name for themselves when in actuality it makes them look like flaming retards, especially to the other cops that looked further than the obvious and the to the judge who he has to go to and request a ticket be dismissed. It's not TV folks.
