Jb Transport: Heavy Haulers 101: Weight

Have you ever hit a pothole?  How about a really big one that swallows your car? There is nothing quite as shocking as unexpectedly diving into a deep hole while cruising along in a vehicle. Even at slow speeds, these experiences can be unnerving. Potholes are the result of a combination of a several things; two really – weight and weather. Continuous stress on a road compresses and stretches the asphalt. Eventually, with enough time and enough weight, the bonds in the pavement can begin to break resulting in tiny fissures and cracks. As weather, especially freezing and thawing, takes its toll, the tiny cracks grow into fully mature holes of destruction. For car travelers and freight transportation carriers alike, serious pothole collisions can be the death knell for the alignment on a vehicle, a tire, and can even result in an accident.
This is the last installment of our series dealing with the size restrictions that can bump a normal freight transportation load into the world of heavy haul. These limits and regulations are in place to protect the truck, the driver, the cargo, the road, and most importantly, everyone else. There are limits on height to prevent trucks from damaging bridges and overpasses. There are restrictions on width to avoid trouble in tunnels and narrow roads. Limitations on length ensure safety on winding roads and city hauls. And now, finally, we will look at the restrictions on weight and the significance to us as heavy haulers and average Joe’s alike. The special permitting required in certain freight transportation situations are intended for the good of us all. Now, all these restrictions might seem like a lot of extra hassle for things that good truck drivers should already be on top of; but, having extra safety measures in place does help keep everyone on the same page. Luckily, with companies like JB Transportation who do all their permitting in-house, the hassles of permitting for heavy hauls become virtually non-existent.
