Pilot/Escorts being a vital part of the success of many major projects that effect our daily lives: i.e. Wind Energy Projects, Highway Projects and virtually anywhere a piece of equipment that exceeds the standard configuation of commercial vehicles, Pilot Cars will be there to protect the public, protect the infrastructure and assist the "Team" that is moving these oversize loads.
In conjunction with the movement of these loads along the highways and biways of our country, Safety of the Public is our primary concern. Pilot Cars are required to be part of the "Team" moving these load and required by State DOT's to enhance public safety.
