No vehicle hauling agricultural products from farm storage or livestock from a farm is subject to enforcement action for violations not exceeding the legal limits imposed pursuant to § 79.003 or § 79.019 by more than 5%. However, the vehicle may not exceed the speed of 50 mph and is only exempt pursuant to this section within a range of 50 miles of the farm. The vehicle may not exceed the posted weight of any bridge or road. The weight tolerance authorized in this section is not applicable during spring load restrictions as set forth in SDCL 32-22-24 or § 79.020. If enforcement action is taken pursuant to this section, the fine or penalty shall apply to that portion of the load that is above the legal limit.
