inspections
on vehicles
overloads

 As usual, also this year the Truck Safety Commission released the data on traffic police checks carried out on heavy vehicles.

Also this year the penalties for overloading pursuant to art. 167 of the Traffic laew code are a significant part of the total of the disputed minutes.

The trend with respect to previous years is always stable. From the data contained in the dossier it emerges that out of 200,000 checks 20,251 (10% of the total) infringements were found due to overload, even in the difficulties that these inspections currently imply (spot checks or on the basis of visual findings, weights far from the patrol, etc. ) we are in the presence of a significant number of reports.

The Traffic law Code in these cases provides for multiple penalties for all the various actors involved (client, loader, carrier, recipient) and indemnity to be paid to the road manager for the greater wear of the pavement road, which often, given the lack of capillary controls, are completely evaded or evaded. The effects on road safety are of considerable impact.

Just think of the increase in the braking distances, often lengthened even by a braking system that is not in perfect efficiency or the stability of the vehicles, compromised by incorrectly loaded goods.

The latest dramatic news events related for example to the Morandi bridge in Genoa, if still necessary, they remind us how important it is to monitor the transit of heavy goods vehicles on works of art and road infrastructure in general.

In a country where more than 80% of the goods travel on the road and which often has not been able to invest in ordinary road maintenance, it becomes a priority to know the weight of the vehicles to protect roads and bridges, allowing the Police Forces to sanction any offenses in a timely manner. There are also positive effects on the medium-long term. Countering the overload allows you to reduce the road repaving intervals with the benefit for all. We all often tend to take the road for granted. It is not so. The road, one of the few things that remain truly public, belongs to everyone and must be protected for the good of all.

The BISON dynamic weighing system developed by iWIM allows you to monitor the weight of vehicles on the roads in real time, protecting them 24 hours a day. BISON is therefore a valid support for the constant monitoring of bridges and other infrastructures. Furthermore, being the first and only WIM (Weigh-In-Motion) system approved in Italy, it can also be used for legal and sanctioning purposes.
