An Act To Amend the Law Concerning Overwidth Farm Tractors on Public Ways

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 29-A MRSA §2381, sub-§2, ¶B,  as amended by PL 2005, c. 314, §14, is further amended to read:

B. Overwidth mowing machines, light farm tractors or other lightweight farming vehicles and equipment not customarily operated over public ways, if equipped with lights pursuant to section 1906, subsection 1, or reflectors at least 12 inches by 12 inches, to the front and rear adequately warning, during nighttime, other highway users of the extreme width; or


Current law allows an overwidth light farm tractor to operate on a public way or bridge without a permit when the tractor is equipped with adequate lights or reflectors warning other highway users of the tractor’s extreme width. This bill allows all overwidth farm tractors to operate on public ways and bridges.
