What is an oversize load? Oversize load regulations vary by state but typically an oversized load is any truck freight that is over 8.5 feet wide and weighs over 80,000 pounds.
Since the truckload is oversized, it’s a danger to other drivers who may not be experienced driving near or around such a large object. Due to this, type of truck freight requires red flags and lights to help identify the oversized truck freight on the road.
