Pilot Car Escorts-required for >9 wide (1) on 2-lane >14 wide (1) on 4-lane <12 may be permitted w/o escorts if equipped w warning lights case by case for vehicles over length and/or height Nevada Night Movement-specific for hwy configuration prohibited except for 75 or less overall length including overhang and overweight only loads permitted for hwys w at least 4 lanes for loads of specific dimensions permitted for hwys w 2 or 3 lanes for loads of specific dimensions 24-hour travel for loads less than legal height, width, 75 length, 10 overhang, and any weight Weekend Movement-specific for route, hwy configuration, & dimension Pilot Car Escort-very specific i.e. 2-3 lane hwys, 1-2 escorts (likely to require hwy patrol in some cases) for width (only the requirements for width are shown) >12 to 14 (1) >14 to 16 (2) >16 (2 or more determined at request) >17 (2 + other state requirements & likely to require state patrol)
