Harry - some of us just try to do the best we can. With no intention to misinform. I agree with everything you say except one thing. If I am from GA. and have Farm Tags on my loaded Bee truck driving down Hwy 95 in NC, more than 150 mi radius from the farm - NC HiWay patrol says I am in big time trouble. So far I have spoken to a representative of FMCSA, the NC Highway Patrol - both quote the 150 mile rule for Farm Plates. I have my DOT number - I have the letter from the FMCSA and await my safety inspection - so far I see nothing about an audit? I understand about the Apiarian Exemption and how it gets us out of part 391 - but the Farm Truck definition is not in part 391. Farm plates are much cheaper than plates for CMVs so sure would like to get a handle on those rules. I know some of you guys drive the continent.WOW!!!!!!!
Almost everything posted so far in this thread is complete mis-information.
It is late and I'm tired so I will let you all sort out the details.
