Excess weight in trucks is among the most common faults that lead to accidents, pointed out Sultan Al Kutbi, Director of Monitoring and Enforcement of the Licensing Agency at the Roads and Traffic Authority.

The maximum weight that truckers should be allowed to load on their trucks is currently under discussion by a subcommittee of the Federal Traffic Council.

In an effort to curb accidents involving heavy vehicles, each truck or heavy bus will have a smart device or telematics installed in it, which will report any kind of fault directly to the Licensing Agency.

Truck and bus drivers are considered the most dangerous category amongst road users, and traffic accidents involving heavy vehicles often result in considerable number of casualties.
