Under pressure to keep a delivery on-schedule, drivers often take to the road with overweight loads, unbalanced loads and other loading problems. When drivers fail to adhere to regulations, they threaten the safety of other motorists. An improperly loaded truck can become a life-threatening hazard, particularly when the truck is traveling at highway speeds.
Potential dangers of an over-weighted truck
A semi-truck is higher than it is wide. If the load, which may be 30 tons or more, is not properly balanced, the truck becomes vulnerable to rollover accidents. An overweight truck also runs the risk of a tire blowout accident and may tax the poorly maintained brake system to the point where truck brake failure occurs.
