VEHICLE WEIGHT REGULATIONS ACROSS CANADA: A TECHNICAL REVIEW WITH RESPECT TO THE CAPACITY OF HIGHWAY SYSTEMS
The diversity in Vehicle Weight Regulations among provinces in Canada seems to deter the interprovincial highway carrier activities; however, a recent technical evaluation of these regulations indicates that the regulations do not, in fact, greatly differ in terms of their force effects on the highway structures. Because Canadian highway systems are designed, by and large, to the same load-carrying capacity and geometric standards, the interprovincial differences in the vehicle weight regulations may be unnecessary from a technical point of view. /Author/
