Iowa State Patrol catches trucker with oversize load on snow covered road


The Iowa State Patrol Commercial Motor Vehicle Unit (ISPCMVE) is reminding truckers that transporting an oversize load on snow or ice covered roads is not permitted.

In a social media post shared on Tuesday, January 9, ISPCMVE shared photos of an apparent oversized load caught traveling during winter weather, along with a warning: “As a reminder – oversize loads on snow/ice covered roads are PROHIBITED.”

Iowa state law requires that a load moved under a permit, such as an oversize load, “shall be made only when roads are clear of ice and snow and visibility is at least one-quarter mile.”

Iowa is experiencing a major winter storm on Tuesday, resulting in hazardous travel conditions throughout the state.
