INCREASING SAFETY & LOWERING COSTS

RESPONSIBILITY

When you drive in a vehicle that is overloaded you put yourself and your fellow road users at risk.

AWARENESS

Many people are not aware that they are overloading their vehicle and the fact that this is illegal.

PROTECTION

OPS products help you to protect yourself and others from the dangers of overloading.

KEY CONSIDERATIONS

Safety

Overloading a vehicle leads to a negative change in vehicle handling. A vehicle that is overloaded by 10 % needs 7,4 m more braking distance when driving at speeds of 100 km/h. This could mean the difference between a near miss or a fatal accident.

Legal Action & Penalties

Overloading your vehicle is prohibited by law. If a violation is found the violator receives a penalty fine or could be facing court summons. The responsibility does not stop with the driver. The vehicle operator could also be held accountable.

Running Costs

Overloading puts massive strain on your vehicle. Tyres overheat and wear out causing dangerous and expensive failure (such as blow outs). Also the longevity of the brakes is significantly reduced. All this leads to an increase in the running costs of your vehicle.

Invalid insurance coverage

Because overloading your vehicle is against the law insurance cover can be void in the case of an accident. You could become severally liable for any expenses related to the accident.
