Farmers reminded over wide-load movements

FARMERS and crofters are being reminded to apply to Police Scotland for an agricultural dispensation for wide vehicle movements.

A scheme, agreed by Police Scotland and NFU Scotland in 2015, means union members with wide vehicles can apply for the dispensation to avoid having to notify police for each individual movement.

Police notification is required if a vehicle, or implement, is over three metres in width and/or projects more than four metres, for example a plough, and is travelling more than five miles, or travelling on any road with a speed limit of less than 40mph.
