Causing or likely to cause danger by reason of load or passengers is a criminal offence in the UK, seeing such motorists issued penalty points as well as fines. A CU50 is produced is a car is over packed, obstructing views and exceeding weight limitations. Where this may not sound like a trivial issue it is in fact extremely important, with too many items increasing the risk of an accident twofold. It is a proven fact that people change their driving style when accompanied by passengers, getting easily distracted when having someone to talk to. The more passengers that are in the car the more the driver’s attention wanders, resulting in them posing more of a risk whilst on the road. Each and every car will have a passenger limit that must not be exceeding. As you can imagine, a car performs differently if the weight is exceeding having a bearing on the steering as well as the tyres. If you have been caught exceeding such limits you will be issued with a CU50.
