Sluit die omskrywing van ‘n goedere voertuig ook die voorspanmotor in?

Vraag:

Ek het n Volvo perd wat omtrent  8.5ton weeg, op sigself kan die ding geen vrag dra nie, is dus nie n goederevoertuig nie, alleenlik wanneer hy n sleepwa trek word hy n goederevoertuig of hoe?

Moet die perd op sigself nou n teken van 100kmh agterop sy kajuit vertoon?

Nou as die perd n sleepwa hak, onmiddellik is hy oor 9 ton en nou moet hy agterop die sleepwa n 80kmh teken sit?

Sal op prys stel as die tammeletjie verduidelik kan word.

Antwoord:

‘n Voorspanmotor is ingesluit in die omskrywing van goods vehicle. Waneer die wetgewing na ‘n goods vehicle verwys, verwys dit outomaties na ‘n voorspanmotor ook.

As jou voertuig se GVM 8.5 ton is sal die GCM definitief meer as 9 ton wees en is die 80 km/h bord en spoedgrens van toepassing.
