Definitions of Performance Based Characteristics for Long Heavy Vehicle Combinations
Report, 2013

Performance Based Characteristics (PBC) can be seen as an alternative for regulating Long Heavy Vehicles and their access to the road network. PBC has potential to improve productivity gains and technological advances while controlling road safety, infrastructure impacts and environmental effects. In order to define the standards, a number of PBC needs to be defined. This report provides and introduces the definitions of PBC for longitudinal and lateral performance of long heavy vehicles.
