Well the trucks are bigger now, with larger capacity trailer combinations (super dogs, quad dogs, etc), there has not been so many RTA inspectors in recent years (well not those with the portable scales), as the RTA now has legal access to weigh bridge dockets/records, and can also fine the company responsible for loading the truck for allowing it to leave the premises over weight.
Any way we seem to be drifting away from the railways a bit here.

When I worked as an weighbridge operator in the 1970's for a large quarrying company trucks were consistently 50%+ over weight. I think today trucks haul higher legal weights than then. Also there are more RTA inspectors around now.
