Is it legal to take up both lanes
Oversized load can't fit neatly in 1 lane at all times
I was just recently cutoff by an employee for Bridgetown Trucking, while on the southbound dual lane portion of Interstate-5 in Oregon. He had had an oversized load (he was hauling a half of a manufactured home) and had no pilot vehicles.
When I entered the interstate, he was well to the right, with a 16 wheel freight truck and a sedan to his left, passing him. I signaled and moved over to pass as well. I gained speed and just as the sedan cleared the nose of his rig, he moved over the center line very abruptly, forcing me to slam on my breaks mid interstate. As I continued to blare my horn, he moved back to the right. I again moved to pass, and he again took to the center, riding in both lanes. As reprehensible as his actions were, my question is regarding the legality. Was it legal for him to behave in such a manner?
