Heavy trucks driven on the roads of the country will be weighed on the go in order to prevent the destruction of roads on which the State Administration spends over 200 million lei for reparation, administration, maintenance and modernization.
Thus, 12 weighing points will be installed on country's roads in the next two years, which will be worth of 120 million lei.
Currently, over 14 percent of trucks driven on national roads are overloaded, and the fines applied are not sufficient to cover the maintenance of road coasts.
State Road Administration pays 4 lei for the reparation of each kilometer driven on by an overloaded truck.
"Heavy trucks have a negative impact on country's roads, exceeding 20, 30 percent of the permissible mass" , said deputy director of the State Road Administration, Iurie Pasa.
