Maine is in the process of legislating changes to the Kingpin to Rear Axle law. Their previous limit was 43′ from Kingpin to Rearmost Axle. Now, after receiving confirmation from the Maine State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit, the limit is being enforced at 45′ 6″. This allows for a lot more flexibility in operations, especially for trailers equipped with tridem axles.
