1. Permits shall be issued only when the movement can be safely accomplished without causing unnecessary traffic congestion.
2. Permits issued under this section shall specify the route over which the mobile home or factory-built structure shall be moved, and wherever possible, the department and local authorities shall specify highways having a roadway at least twenty-four feet in width.
3. Single-trip permits may be issued by the department or local authorities contingent upon favorable road and weather conditions.
