3.13 Truck Classification by Weight 

3.13.1 introduction: The purpose of this classification is to describe the weights of trucks involved in road vehicle traffic crashes. 

3.13.2 categories: There are three mutually exclusive categories of trucks based on gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). The categories are:

Light truck — gross vehicle weight rating under 10,000 pounds (4,536 kilograms) 

Medium truck — gross vehicle weight rating 10,000 to 26,000 pounds (4,536 to 11,793 kilograms) 

Heavy truck — gross vehicle weight rating over 26,000 pounds (11,793 kilograms) 

3.13.3 guide to classification: A gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) appears on a label or tag affixed to single-unit trucks, truck tractors, and trailers manufactured for use in the United States. Such a label is required by federal regulations issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (49CFR567). The required label is generally placed on the door or door frame next to the driver's seating position or, for trailers, on the forward half of the left side. 

Gross vehicle weight ratings for trucks are also encoded in vehicle identification numbers (VINs) and may be included in computerized motor vehicle records maintained by the states. 

Substitution of an estimate for a gross vehicle weight rating should take place only when the rating is not available from the above sources
