2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill prohibits a person from loading or operating a vehicle loaded in a way that may cause the contents, or any part thereof, to be scattered in any street. The bill amends current law to include furniture, mattresses, or other debris other than farm products within the materials required to be securely fastened. The bill also amends current law to require that a load be securely fastened to the vehicle with rope, straps with ratchet fasteners, or any other similar type of safety harness in addition to being covered by a tarpaulin or other cover. Under the bill, the Chief Administrator of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission is to promulgate rules and regulations, in accordance with the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act, establishing minimum safety standards for fastening loads on and fix loading procedures for any commercial type flat bed motor vehicle, motor-drawn vehicle, and passenger automobile temporarily used to transport material that is susceptible to being scattered on the roadway.
