Industry News: Majority of van drivers unaware of load carrying limits

Monday 8th August 2016

A recent study has revealed that 53% of van drivers are unaware of the maximum load carrying capacity of their vehicles, and that almost half of businesses do not carry out regular weight checks on their vehicles.

In 2015 the DVSA stopped over 10,800 vans on UK roads and found 89% to be overloaded.  Products such as Bowmonk's AxleCheck provide an easy way to monitoring van weights to ensure that vehicles are never overloaded - either overall or for a single axle.
