A person shall not drive or move a vehicle on a highway unless the vehicle is so constructed or loaded as to prevent its contents from dropping, sifting, leaking, blowing off, or otherwise escaping from the vehicle. The tailgate, faucets, and taps on a vehicle shall be securely closed to prevent spillage during transportation whether the vehicle is loaded or empty, and the vehicle shall not have any holes or cracks through which material can escape.

Actual spillage of material on the highway or proof of that spillage is not necessary to prove a violation of this section. Any load that is covered shall be securely fastened to the body or the frame of the vehicle with binders of adequate number and of adequate breaking strength to prevent the dropping off or shifting of the load.

A PERSON WHO VIOLATES THIS SECTION IS GUILTY OF A MISDEMEANOR PUNISHABLE BY A FINE OF NOT MORE THAN $500.00 OR IMPRISONMENT FOR NOT MORE THAN 90 DAYS, OR BOTH.  learn more...
