Vehicle weights and dimensions

Vehicles are limited in height, width, length and weight by regulations under The Traffic Safety Act. The following are only some of the regulations which will provide a professional driver with the basic knowledge required when driving vehicles that carry passengers or goods. The complete applicable act and regulations should be consulted for interpreting and applying the law in all cases. Provisions are made for the issuing of permits for the movement of vehicles carrying oversize or overweight loads. Regardless of licensing or permits issued, you must obey all posted signs which limit the dimensions or weight of loads on any portion of the highway.

To assist you in avoiding damage to your vehicle and its load, and possible injury to highway users, you must be alert to warning signs.

This particularly applies to overheight loads which often strike overhead structures. .
