The reader should refer tothe regulations for a legal several years now, the minist re desTransports du Qu bec has been workingat harmonizing Qu bec standards withthose of other North American adminis-trations. However, in spite of efforts toharmonize the standards with those ofother administrations, some differencesmay remain. It is therefore important to verify applicable rules before drivingin these administrations with vehicles that comply with Qu bec regulations.

Theregulations are in conformity with theFederal-Provincial-Territorial Agreementon Vehicle Weights and Dimensions datedFebruary 1988(amended in September1991, July 1994 and June 1997). Thisregulation defines limits of dimensions,axle loads and gross weight for vehiclestravelling on public roads. It do notapply to vehicles designed tofight vehicle or a combina-tion of vehicles whichdo not meet the stan-dards set by this reg-ulation cannot travelon public roads unlesstheir owner or lesseehas obtained a specialpermit delivered for thispurpose. Special permits arerequired for experimental vehicles or oversize and overweight vehicles because of their design ( self-propelled crane) or becausethey are carrying an indivisible load ( moving a house).This guide does not address regulatorymeasures applied to vehicles travellingon the special class public road whichprovides access to the James BayTerritory or at crossroads where publicroads meet private roads. For specificinformation, please refer to the legal Soci t de l assurance automobile duQu bec must approve any modificationto a road vehicle meant to travel on pub-lic road, when such modification mayalter stability or braking ( increase infront axle capacity).To convert pounds into kilograms (kg),the number of pounds (lb) is divided Likewise, to convert tire widthsfrom inches into millimetres, the numberof inches is multiplied by LOAD AND SIZE LIMITS GUIDE , MINIST RE DES TRANSPORTS DU QU BECDEFINITIONS36A.

The sum of all tire capacities in the class;It is indicated by the manufacturer on the side of the tire,generally in pounds:There are usually two figures S when tires are single-mounted; D when tires are that last case, when tires are twin-mounted, the capacityof the inside tire is the same as that of the outside tire,unless otherwise ascertained. When tires are single-mounted,a minimum width is required. The nominal tire width is indicated by the manufacturer on the side of the tire. The sum, of tire capacities for each axle shall not exceed 10 kg/mm of tire width. This tire width provision does not apply to front (steering) axle The axle load capacity (GAWR) for a front axle;Axle load capacity is 5 500 kg for a front single axle ( )and 11 000 kg for a front tandem axle ( ) or front multiple axle ( ). This capacity can be increased whensuch capacity is indicated by the vehicle manufacturer or the person who modified the vehicle with the approval of the Soci t de l assurance automobile du Qu bec. 3. The load limit of the axle class (table 1).The limit is given in table 1 for each axle class provided forin the regulation, depending on the time of the year (normalor thaw).
