Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 56-5-4185 of the 1976 Code, as added by Act 35 of 1991, is amended to read:
"Section 56-5-4185. (A) Notwithstanding Section 56-5-4030 or any other provision provisions of this chapter, the department shall issue, under terms and conditions as in its judgment are in the public interest for safety on the highways, an open end or annual permit for the use on the public highways of cotton modular vehicles. For the purposes of this section, `cotton modular vehicle' is defined as a single motor vehicle used only to transport seed cotton modules, cotton, or equipment used in the transporting or processing of cotton. This cotton modular vehicle must may not exceed a width of one hundred seven inches and must may not exceed a length of forty-six fifty feet extreme overall dimensions and inclusive of front and rear bumpers and load. When loaded, operation of these vehicles may take place only on state and federal highways and roads and only during the day. `Day' means the time between sunrise and sunset. Operation on federal interstates is limited to empty weight transit into and out of the State. To be valid, the permit must be carried on the vehicle, and it is unlawful for any a person to violate any a provision, term, or condition of the permit. The fee for the permit is fifty dollars and authorizes the use of only one properly described cotton modular vehicle. The department may promulgate regulations to carry out the provisions of this section.
(B) A person violating (1) the provisions of this section, (2) any a provision, term, or condition of the permit, or (3) any a regulation promulgated by the department pursuant to the authority of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined an amount not exceeding more than two hundred dollars or imprisoned for a term not exceeding more than thirty days."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
