What are truck and vehicle constraints and how can I use them?

Vehicle Constraints

Vehicle constraints provide more detail about roads such as bridge heights and weight restrictions.  This is of special interest to trucking fleets to ensure trucks are following safe and legal routes.  These constraints are normally provided in a separate truck attribute GBFS file.  Sample truck data can be found in the Sample Data section.

Vehicle Attributes

Vehicle attributes set the dimensions of your vehicle, such as height, weight and length.  These are used by the routing engine to find a correct route based on where your vehicle is allowed to travel.
