The Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 cover the design, manufacture, maintenance and use of motor vehicles and trailers used by road transport operators, amongst others. Although certain vehicles are exempt from a substantial number of the constructional requirements described in the regulations, for example an agricultural tractor. There are also concessions for vehicles more than 20 years old. In addition to the design and manufacture of goods vehicles this section also looks at bridge strikes, usually caused by the driver being unaware of the height of the vehicle.
