MUMBAI: The All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC) will conduct a 15-day campaign, beginning January 1, to create awareness and sensitize truckers against overloading of goods.

"Our campaign will be conducted from January 1 to 15 at the state and district level across the country. We will not only sensitize drivers but also tip off authorities about the menace on our highways." Said Bal Malkit Singh of AIMTC.

He further said, "Overloading must be shunned at all cost. Overloading in commercial vehicles is one of the potential causes of road accidents. The overloading of trucks is not in the interest of the trade, society, state or the nation. At times, major accidents have occurred and resulted in loss of precious lives and goods being carried in these vehicles."

Overloading of vehicles is not only a violation of Sections 113, 113 (3), 114, 199 and 194 of Motor Vehicle Act, 1988 but contempt of judgment of Supreme Court on overloading dated November 9, 2005, Singh said.

"At the ground level, perpetrators of overloading are allowed to move on the national highways freely while the fact is that genuine and law abiding transporters are being harassed as the field officers are not able to make quick money through them,'' Singh alleged. Officers in Maharashtra denied the charge, saying they too conducted a drive against overloading recently in which they apprehended 2,455 drivers and recovered fines to the tune of Rs 3 crore.

"Road safety awareness is an important agenda and as a major stakeholder of road transport Industry, AIMTC also espouses the cause of road safety which is why we are organising this campaign.''Said Singh.

The AIMTC will also conduct other programmes to foster road safety awareness and inculcate road discipline, he added.
