DPWH-DOTr ex­tends sus­pen­sion of en­force­ment on anti-over­load­ing to cer­tain types of trucks, trail­ers

Sun.Star Pampanga - - SHOW! -

The Depart­ment of Pub­lic Works and High­ways (DPWH) and Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion (DOTr) have re­ex­tended the sus­pen­sion of en­force­ment of the max­i­mum al­low­able gross ve­hi­cle weight (GVW) for trucks and trail­ers hav­ing a to­tal of 18 and 22 wheels.

DPWH Sec­re­tary Mark A. Vil­lar and DOTr Sec­re­tary Arthur P. Tu­gade agreed to move the anti-over­load­ing pol­icy from its pre­vi­ous dead­line to June 30 2019, al­low­ing haulers and truck­ers to ac­quire ad­di­tional trans­port equip­ment to con­form to the lat­est GVW.

The sus­pen­sion cov­ers Code 12-2 and 12-3 which in­volves truck, semi-trailer with 3-axles at mo­tor ve­hi­cle and 2 axles at trailer for a to­tal of 18 wheels and truck semi-trailer with 3 axles at mo­tor ve­hi­cle and 3-axles at trailer sum­ming up 22 wheels.

“Truck/trailer own­ers have suf­fi­cient time to up­grade their units to con­form with lat­est max­i­mum al­low­able GVW of 41,500 for code 12-2 and 42,000 kilo­grams for code 12-3 be­fore July 1, 2019,” said Sec­re­tary Vil­lar.

Other truck/trailer codes must ob­serve the cur­rent max­i­mum al­low­able GVW un­der the anti-over­load­ing pol­icy.

Com­pli­ance with the pol­icy will pre­vent early dam­age and de­te­ri­o­ra­tion to road pave­ments and will lessen the oc­cur­rence of ac­ci­dents at­trib­uted to over­loaded ve­hi­cles.

Un­der Repub­lic Act 8794 or “An Act Im­pos­ing a Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle User’s Charge on Own­ers of all Types of Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle and for Other Pur­poses”, a fine worth 25% of the mo­tor ve­hi­cle user’s charge (MVUC) will be charged against over­loaded trucks ap­pli­ca­ble at the time of in­fringe­ment.
