Windmill turbine with pilot car
A pilot car is essential for the safety of your truck driver, their cargo, and the other drivers on the road. They are transporting larger-than-normal materials equipment and machinery for the wind power industry, boats, mobile homes, or large pieces of machinery. In many states, using a pilot or escort car service is mandatory when the load you’re transporting is over a certain weight or dimensions. If you’re carrying your cargo across multiple states, it’s best to secure an escort car throughout the journey to prevent any undue hang-ups, delays, or fines.
TYPES OF ESCORT SERVICE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE:
Lead: A front escort usually serves as a proactive, early warning resource to notify Drivers of any oncoming traffic or potential hazards ahead.
Rear: A rear escort serves as the buffer between other traffic and the truck & load. They are occupying offset or multiple lanes behind the freight to protect traffic while the truck and trailer make a turn or prepare to make a lane change.
High Pole Car: When the load is over height restrictions, most states require a pilot car, called "Height Pole Car", in front of the tractor-trailer. This type of car has a telescopic pole attached at the front of the pilot car which is adjustable to match the height for that particular load in order to clear bridges, traffic signals, power lines or other overhead obstructions
