    Apologies for thread Hijack again @4bye4 mate!
    This Vic pdf download 60% rule honestly still has my little noggin confused blokes :-( Would I be correct in saying that a very long wheel based ute or light truck (say 5,000mm) yet had a legal snubbed off cut tray (say 1,000mm) would be allowed to ‘overhang’ a length of steel (with flag) 2,000mm from trays end?
    If correct that seems crazy to me as 2.0m of steel would not only go through a mini bus drivers chest but also passengers behind:-(
    Surely there is a maximum ‘overhang’ length here in Vic like WA has found on their ‘MainRoads’ site ?

    I'll try again (God Windows 10 shits me)...

    https://www.tmr.qld.gov.au/Safety/Ve...ing-loads.aspx

    Qld link explains it best...
    "R"
    Max overhang including load is 60% blah blah blah.
    "PR"
    If your wheelbase and rear axle/axle group position mean that the 60% rule maths will allow you to have a load that projects up to 1.2 metres no worries.
    If your wheelbase and rear axle/axle group position mean that the 60% rule maths will allow you to have a load that projects over 1.2 metres must have a warning flag/light

    Be aware that different states have different rules regarding trailers, the above should be kosher for Vehicles.

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    Yep. ET has it correct!! And the 1.2m is for both front and rear projection, measured from the end of the vehicle, not the centre of the wheels as the 'rear overhang' is measured.
    Should have mentioned that in the earlier message.
    And where there is more than one measurement method (eg 60% method or the 1.2m method), it is always the lesser of the possibilities.
