Exemptions for Farm Vehicles

 

On July 6, 2012 President Obama signed into law H.R. 4348, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21).  Included in the law were several exemptions relating to farm vehicles for farmers and ranchers.  These exemptions went into effect on Oct. 1, 2012.

 

As states seek to conform to the new provisions established in MAP-21, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has released an updated questions and answers document.
