At least in Europe you won't drive alone, there will be a
accompagnying police car in front and back of you (convoi
exceptionel), and you'll pay for that ;-)

Maximum width for "ordinary" vehicles in Germany is e.g. 2,50 m and I
think this is at least in Europe the standard.

+1, I agree to this. Another issue besides the width is still the
height (see Colin Smale above), as it doesn't help you in your say
2,30 x 3,95 m (w x h) truck to know that the road is 3 m wide, but
this only for a height till 3,40 because above there is trees going
over the street.

+1, tag it explicitly and till width is there, it is simply unknown.
