SYNOPSIS

Road safety has the contributory factor from good roads, good vehicles and good drivers. The role of Weight Restriction Order (WRO) on the load carrying capacity of the vehicles against the road structures cannot be underestimated. The Malaysia Government, through the Ministry of Works, had recently amended the WRO to cater for increase in load carrying capacity of commercial vehicles.

The Talk gives a brief introduction to WRO that shapes the Maximum Permissible Gross Vehicle Weight (BDM) and classifies the Federal Routes according to load bearing of roads. Maximum wheel loads affect the maximum axle loads which will in effect affect the vehicle BDM and its design.

Overloading of vehicles has damaging effect to roads and may risk the vehicles in road crashes and financial losses. The Talk also highlighted overloading offences and the shortcomings of the WRO.
