Farm license plates (benefits or regulations) <38,000lb transports
In the state of Kentucky, and particularly in my area, there are a lot of regular pickup trucks that have a farm license plates. Reading KY state rules, if I'm reading it right it appears that if your hauling 0-38,000 lb of agricultural products then you will need to have one of these plates.
1. So, if this is a fact, then hobby beekeepers transporting 2 supers need these plates?
2. Does anyone know what benefits these plates can be used for if not for regulations, then for transporting on Interstate vs backroads avoiding axel weights?
3. What reasons would I need a farm plate? Seems like I remember the kids in AG class saying they are getting a plate because it looked cool, but could never give me a reason why they needed one.
