of the vehicle in such a manner as to indicate the extreme height and width of the
vehicle. When rear identification lamps are required and are mounted as high as is practicable,

clearance lamps results in such lamps failing to indicate the extreme width of the
trailer, such lamps may be mounted at optional height but must indicate, as nearly
as practicable, the extreme width of the trailer. Clearance lamps on truck tractors shall be located so as to indicate the extreme
width of the truck tractor cab. Clearance lamps and side marker lamps may be mounted in combination provided illumination
is given as required herein with reference to both.

a nonmoving violation as provided in chapter 318.
