Heavy loaded trucks benefit weighbridge officials

laghman map jpgA number of truck drivers have accused weighbridge officials in eastern Laghman province of demanding bribes in return for allowing overloaded trucks to pass through.

Qararuddin, an oil tanker, said he paid 500 AFN to the truck scale staff each time to avoid unnecessary delays in fuel transportation to his clients.

Highways have been damaged at various locations due to overloaded vehicles.

Meanwhile, Laghman weighbridge officials Abdul Qadir said he was not aware of any bribery at the facility.

However, he promised to punish those accepting bribes. “If I am proved guilty of having accepted bribes, I am ready to be prosecuted,” Pajhwok Afghan News quotes the official.
