I know that California has a 65mph limit with a toad, and no right on red in NYC. Also lots of places prohibit u-turns. - Does anyone know of a good source for all these state law exceptions and oddities? I'd prefer online so I could always access it.

Actually when towing in Ca the speed limit is 55. Also, I believe a class B license is required for a vehicle over 40'. I would love a site that had a collection of odd laws related to RVing.

The laws that your state has are the only ones you need to worry about as all the other states go along with what ever your state requires.

That's true insofar as driver license reciprocity is concerned. However, you must comply with the traffic laws (speed limits, prohibitions on towing double, the "no right on red" example, etc.) of the states through which you travel.

Don't know if it's unique; but, in Alabama if you are on a one-way street and you come to a traffic light at the intersection of another one-way street onto which you want to turn left, you can turn left on the red light when it is clear to do so. Over the years I know that many Alabama drivers don't know about this.

Yes, and it's incredibly archaic. Only state in the nation with such a low limit as far as I'm aware.

You can turn left on red in AZ if it is a one way street to another one way street.

Weigh stations

Do class A motorhomes need to stop at weigh stations?

I've seen signs at California weigh stations that say: RVs not allowed.

Oregon is the same. I stick to that when I'm traveling thru there. Since I'm retired, it makes for a nice easy drive. I'm always amazed at those RV's that pass me like I'm going backwards. Got more guts than I do!

Just so you know, in OR a motorhome towing a vehicle can run the single vehicle speeds. They do not have to drive the truck speeds. Got that from one of their highway patrol guys

In general only commercial vehicles need to stop at weigh stations.

Does wonders as a revenue resource though. Which is really the reason for dual speed limits. Or speed limits in general. I know all about the reason speed limits were initially established blah blah fuel efficiency blah blah. The reality is that speed limits, and dual speed limits are a HUGE source of income for states, cities, counties and municipalities in general. They hide behind the guise of safety but in reality we all know, or should know, it's all about the money. Dual speed limits are actually much more dangerous than having all traffic flowing along at the same speed. Here in Texas there are no dual speed limits and no night and day speed limits. Same speed limit for everyone all the time.
