The Construction and Use Regulations provide the basic law by which normal motor vehicles and trailers (up to a maximum of 40 tonnes) are built and operate on the road.
The movement of large or heavy loads and cranes that exceed dimensions set down in the Regulations is permitted provided they comply with Special Types General Orders. These are generally referred to as Abnormal Loads.
