By BBN Staff: This week, the Department of Transport (DOT) issued a notice to drivers regarding the number of trailers that a single vehicle can haul, and the length of those trailers.
The DOT said on Thursday that the hauling of two or more trailers, without written permission from the Department, is prohibited under the Motor Vehicles & Road Traffic Regulations.
The Department added that, in accordance with Regulation 69, the overall length of a trailer shall not exceed 60 feet.
“It is hereby advised that the Department of Transport will be carrying out enforcement operations throughout the country to ensure that these regulations are being adhered to. Furthermore, the Department urges drivers to adhere to the speed limits as a means of reducing the road traffic collisions,” the DOT said.
The department went on to say that any owner and/or driver found in contravention of the regulations will be fined and their vehicle may be ordered to be taken off the road
