An overweight vehicle will not only cause damage to roads and to your vehicle but also put drivers and other road users at risk.Overloading a vehicle:

  • Makes the vehicle less stable, difficult to steer and take longer to stop.
  • Vehicles react differently when the maximum weight that they are designed to carry is exceeded. The consequences can be fatal.
  • Puts massive strain on vehicle tyres. Overloading can cause the tyres to overheat and wear rapidly which increases the chance of premature, dangerous and expensive failure (such as blow outs).
  • Means insurance cover is void. Overloading a vehicle is illegal and therefore insurance cover can be void if the vehicle is involved in a crash.
  • Causes excessive wear and damage to roads, bridges, and pavements at the expense of the taxpayer.
  • Increases fuel consumption, which will increase your costs.
