The RTA denies raid on wool trucks
Nov '10
The Roads and Traffic Authority revealed that they never intended to raid the trucks overloaded with wool bales.

Manufacturers recently voiced their concerns regarding the changes that have been introduced by RTA in the rules concerning loading capacity of trucks, which would cause the drivers to suffer a penalty of $700.

Contradicting the manufacturer's concerns, the RTA stated that, no changes have been introduced in any of the rules, and that a reminder notice that had been forwarded to the manufacturers must have caused some confusion. The RTA also discussed the matter with the cultivators many a times.

Further, the RTA authorities even assured that, they would continue their discussion with the cultivators and transporters, so as to solve this issue regarding size of wool bales. They also revealed that, no new regulations were introduced; neither did they intend to raid the trucks.

RTA while being fair to all the parties stated that, wool bales have remained a cause of concern for years together, and not much has been done in this direction to solve the issue, so as to ensure better conformity of safety rules for drivers and other people on the road.
