Tie-down regulations for agricultural trucks
The agricultural intrastate cargo securement exemption has been extended for another year by the California Highway Patrol commissioner, until April 30, 2016, or until federal regulations are adopted.
Carriers who do not have an exemption letter from the CHP must apply using the forms on the CFBF website. Below, you'll find the information and forms needed to apply.
Those who have already applied for and received the exemption letter in previous years will automatically receive another extension through April 30, 2016, provided they carry a copy of the letter they received from the CHP in their vehicle and continue with their monthly reporting requirements.
