  2. here in holland we have also the long truck,s with the lengt of 25,25 meters and a max weight of 60 ton and the normal one,s with16 meters etc

    that the most trailers are use with 3 axle,s is because the max weight pressure on the road and that the trailer,s are very narrow on the cab is for the max lenght and also we have here smal road,s and narrow street,s in city,s etc

    most truck,s [ 4x2 ] have a front axle for 7 ton , [ steering ] than 11 ton and the trailer have most 3x9 ton now its some change in the years and most thing,s are now new because the material is every time changed with other regulations

    and how the contolled that , some years ago the have here in holland a sort of cable in the road and when you passed this he register everything from the truck , weigt , axle pressure and the even make a fotograph for evidence , you can,t see the front of the truck with the licence plate , and also the driver and also wath he due at that point [ smoke a cigaret , on the phone ore wath ever ] fore so far i known that,s al gone now
