AGO 1950 NO. 275 >

There is not necessarily any direct conflict between subdivision (j), section 5, chapter 220 and section 3, chapter 221, Laws of 1949.  The correct construction of the two provisions is that no city or town has any right to interfere with a movement of an overloaded or overwidth vehicle through a city or town when such movement is confined to the route of the state highway, originating and terminating outside such city or town, provided such movement is lawfully permitted by the Director of Highways.
