How much do ITD buses weigh – an unanswered question
Can you check how much ITD buses weigh? I sent this question to the General Inspector of Road Transport. It was left unanswered.
On doswatczak.pl I regularly write about reviews of overloaded vehicles with GVW up to 3.5 tons. On the one hand, those vehicles with heavy loads are a threat to other road users, but they are also a sign of unfair competition against companies that try to carry out transport in accordance with the law and respect the total permissible weight set in the registration document. of such a bus.
However, every now and then in the comments, eg on Facebook, there are comments questioning whether ITD police cars are suitable for a 3.5 tonne GVM.
I have tried several times to find out if it is possible to test a green and white car, but inspectors who conduct inspections on Polish roads swore that they were “normal”, but the management of one message or another did not notice. reason for testing such a car.
Of course, I have no reason to deny whether ITD police cars are inside the DMC or not. I just wanted to check how it really is.
Finally on May 12, 2023, I sent an official inquiry to the General Inspector of Road Transport and then confirmed by phone that the email with the proposal to test the ITD police car reached the Office of Information and Promotion in the Department of Communications. of GITD and was sent for consideration. I waited patiently until today. That’s 116 days, which is 3 months and 24 days. And what? And there is nothing.
