I've never been diving in Southern California.
And 8 1/2 feet is the widest thing allowed on the road without a permit. They have to draw the line somewhere or else it would get out of hand. The permit is up to 10 or 12 feet (?)after that you need a special "wide load" permit which is more involved. But those permits are cheap and basically nothing more than a permission slip and a map showing a designated route. I'm not sure the lesser permit even costs any money, they just want to know what you're hauling and where you're going so they can determine the best routes and times of day for the safety of others on the road.
After all, when we drive and pull trailers on the roads it is a priviledge to do so not a right, so I gladly abide by the rules knowing that others must do so also.
