Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

That's interesting that the weight limit for trucks varies by day of the week. Still, 60 tons is pretty heavy. I've seen trucks here licensed to weigh 102,000 pounds or 51 tons. That seems like a lot for these monsters of the road. I've noticed the drivers of these big rigs, in the U.S., are getting less courteous and will gladly pull in front of you on the highway to pass another big truck. This effectively blocks the roadway until they finally complete the passing maneuver .

30 Sep 2013 10:20pm

@Steve Rice: The weight limit was changed, because the law was changed. In addition, the weights of vehicles can be restricted in the case of bridges, road signs .. Where to look for another route. The drivers are of many kinds. Others know how to adapt to others, and others do not. The drivers are trained to present a lot more than before. Thank you for your interest.
