Oversize Load

Sizes & Weights

Federal law restricts the length and weight of tractor-semitrailers on the road under the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21). However, 21 states allow exemptions that put bigger, heavier trucks on the roads

AAA opposes these exemptions as well as any efforts to allow larger heavier trucks on the road for three reasons:

  • Safety
  • Impact on the infrastructure
  • Overwhelming concerns of AAA members.
