The term "pilot car" is a general phrase used to refer to a vehicle that protects motorists by following or leading (escorting) oversize shipments that are being transported on highways and roads. Also referred to as a "escort vehicle" pilot cars are fitted with lights that strobe as well as signs that state "oversize load". This warns motorists to proceed with caution as they are very close to a shipment that is larger than most.
