Industry News: DVSA systems catch overloaded trucks. See how they work

Wednesday 19th September 2018

Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has special WIM sensors and roadside cameras all over the country. It helps the agency fight the overloaded delivery trucks and lorries, which pose a threat to road users and damage road infrastructure.
At the beginning of this decade, the DVSA automated the existing manual weight-control systems. The new solution is a combination of WiMS sensors (Weigh in Motion Sensors) and the ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) system.
Induction loops and special sensors have been placed in the road surface to determine the weight of the passing truck.
