SCS SB 633 -- Truck Lengths

Sponsor: Childers

This bill defines a "dromedary" as a truck-tractor designed for pulling other vehicles and which may carry part of the load when operating independently, but when attached to a semi-trailer, supports a part of the weight. A dromedary and semitrailer on state highways may operate with an overall length of 60 feet. On interstate highways systems of the state, such vehicles' overall length will be the length of the dromedary plus a trailer not to exceed 53 feet.

The overall allowed length of automobile transporters, boat transporters, and truck-trailers boat transporter combinations is increased from 65 feet to 75 feet.
