Can I display a "Wide Load" banner in Kansas?

No.  Vehicles operating under the provisions of a special permit that exceed the width or length limitations shall have a sign attached that reads “OVERSIZE LOAD” while operating in Kansas.  

The dimensions of the sign shall be a minimum of seven feet long and 18 inches high.  Letters shall be a minimum of 10 inches high with a brush stroke of not less than 1 2/5 inches.  The sign shall be readily visible from a distance of 500 feet and shall be removed when the vehicle or load no longer exceeds the legal width or length dimensions.  Vehicles that are only overweight shall not have a sign attached which states “OVERSIZE LOAD.”  (KSA 8-1911 and KAR 36-1-36(s))
