I would like to know where these people get their info from because I have never seen one that is correct. I have personally called Alabama and Georgia to ask about towing my rig and was told both places that they don't have laws for recreational towing doubles.

That's what it said for those states. No triple towing.

That's what I'm saying. They told me I could tow my rig there because they didn't have a law saying I couldn't because I'm recreational.

Ok, I took it the other way. In Michigan they passed a law to allow triple towing. Before that you couldn't.

I stumbled on this while investigating propane laws; I am planning a trip thru the Bay Bridge Tunnel... I figured it was accurate, but now I question that after Tranz's post..   They do have this disclaimer on the top of the page that I paid little attention to;

Yeah I think that if they can't find the info they need they use commercial laws for their info. I also think a lot of times how safe something looks or is will be the officers discretion. I have talked to quite a few Leo's here and other states and all that I have talked to have said that unless I'm trying to do something stupid like taking my rig the a McDonald's drive-thu then most won't bother me. They all were told that I'm over the 65'. Even in the commercial side of the laws they let a lot slide. Anything over 65' combined , 8.5' wide or 45' single is called a STAA truck. There are roads that restrict the travel of STAA trucks.

I believe the propane in a tunnel would be the same as commercial hazmat which would be 1001# or more.
