§ 136‑18.4.  Provision and marking of "pull‑off" areas.

The Department of Transportation is hereby authorized and directed (i) to provide as needed within its right‑of‑way, adjacent to long sections of two‑lane primary highway having a steep uphill grade or numerous curves, areas on which buses, trucks and other slow‑moving vehicles can pull over so that faster moving traffic may proceed unimpeded and (ii) to erect appropriate and adequate signs along such sections of highway and at the pull‑off areas.  A driver of a truck, bus, or other slow‑moving vehicle who fails to use an area so provided and thereby impedes faster moving traffic following his vehicle shall be guilty of a Class 3 misdemeanor. (1975, c. 704; 1977, c. 464, s. 7.1; 1993, c. 539, s. 978; 1994, Ex. Sess., c. 24, s. 14(c).)
