Ek sien hierdie plasing en wonder hoe die SAPD op 'n gewone pad kan bepaal sonder 'n weegbrug dat 'n woonwa oorgewig is.

Hierdie was blykbaar in die Julie 2016 uitgawe van CaravanSA volgens wat ek op hul web site kan sien.

As ek na die foto kyk is daar nie 'n weegbrug en ek sou dink dis die enigste manier om oorgewig te bepaal of het ons nou mense wat net kan kyk na 'n woonwa en bepaal dit is oorgewig en dalk ook sommer hoeveel die woonwa oorgewig is?

Dalk is daar iemand wat meer duidelikheid het rondom hierdie voorval.

Was dit nie dalk die geval voer die jaar met die mense wat Buffelspoort toe is hier in April oor die Paas week nie?

I think that I agree with Geerts version here.
No one can make this call without being queried on guesswork.
The owner here would want to know how they determine the weight.
This would also have been done by Traffic Officials and not the SAPS.

Good morning,

Maybe I can shed some light on what actually happened.
During the Easter weekend the police and traffic policy do have two roadblocks on the N4 tollroad between Brits tollplaza and the buffelspoort tollplaza. This is part of crime prevention activities, etc.
At one of the roadblocks just after the Brits tollplaza in a western direction towards Buffelspoort several caravans where pulled over by the traffic police and requested to proceed to the N4 weightbridge not far from the roadblock for a confirmation of the weight of the caravan and the tow vehicle. Obviously the weightbridge and the roadblock officers where in radio contact with each other. The caravans then went to the weightbridge were the weight where determined and found to be over or in access of the homologated stats.

@Phil.

Thanks for giving the additional information. I looked at the pic and it did not seem to be on the N4 and nothing is mentioned of being asked to go to the weigh bridge.

It does seem as the author Melody was in a caravan that was prepared for long stays as "swallows" and seems to have been far overweight. The statement "everything we need" explains the overweight of old or new vans.

Think it is as Chuck has mentioned. It was the insident at the weigh bridge during April this year.

Fact is the only way to determine if you are over weight is to physically weigh the caravan and tow vehicle.

Just take note that there are some sort of mobile weigh units available but thse are semi mobile because the plates are still mounted permenantly in the tar. It is only the electronic unit that is mobile.

In such an instant you must request the originall calibration certificate (Not a copy thereoff) that has the serial number of the mobile unit and the serial number of the weighing plates in the ground on it. All serial numbers must be visible to the eye and the calibration must be done every few months. Not sure but 3 or 4 months rings a bell.

Nog 'n klip in die bos  .......

I think it would be difficult to claim/prove interest if you are requested to empty the caravan and all items weighed and substantially exceed the difference between the caravans tare and gross, even if the scale is not calibrated.

As I started - just a stone in the bush ...

Hier is die draad waar ek dit gekry het. Die handel ook oor nuwe tipe onderstel van 'n wa wat gekraak het met Jurgens se antwoorde hoe om die swak plek te herstel. Asook die voorskrifte hoe om 'n wiel om te ruil wat in die handleiding geplaas was en nou verwyder is.
