Sometimes it can get confusing trying to keep up with hauler requirements. SEMA is now providing a great tool to assist.

SEMA has created a new website resource to help the motorsports community understand state and federal law governing trailers and tow vehicles. The website provides guidance on how racing enthusiasts can avoid citations for a trailer that is too long, a trailer that is not properly registered with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) or for other related issues.

When issued, citations generally fall within two categories: 1) the size of the trailer violated state law, or 2) the vehicle/trailer combination was considered “commercial” by enforcement authorities but had not been registered with the DOT or state-equivalent agency. The webpage divides the resource material into three sections: a comparison of state laws, folders containing laws/regulations for each individual state, and an explanation of federal laws triggered by commercial activity or vehicle weight.

The material is posted in the “RESOURCES” menu under “Motorsports Trailers.” The direct link is www.semasan.com/page.asp?content=motorsports_trailers&g=SEMAGA. You are encouraged to share this new resource.
