Overloaded Trucks – Be Cautious!

Posted on Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Trucks contribute a very important part in maintaining the country’s economy. In a vast country like India, trucks aid the commerce by delivering cargo even to most remote areas. Nearly 5 million truck drivers in the country who keep the economy moving.

One of the major problems truckers are facing is overloading. The truck managers overload the trucks as transportation costs increase if trucks carry the permissible load. The National Highway Authority of India will shortly prohibit overloaded trucks on the highways. Around 60-70% of goods are transported on National Highways.

Overloaded vehicles pose an obstacle to for other vehicles on the road. Moreover, overloaded trucks cause more environmental pollution as they burn the gas impartially. They also damage the highway. According to a study, an overburdened truck of 100 kg can damage the highway much more than a normal truck. According to the stats 10% of the trucks damage the roads by 35% and lessen their overall age.

We share along a video – ‘Overloaded Trucks – Be Cautious!’ - It is a collaborative effort of Mahindra Navistar and Zee news to recognize and appreciate the efforts taken by truck drivers to keep the economy stable.

This video brings more such interesting insights into the ‘Life into the trucking industry’:
