Veifraktloven (the Norwegian legislation concerning the carrage of goods by road)
Explanation:
veifraktloven > Veifraktloven (the Norwegian legislation concerning the carrage of goods by road).

"veifraktloven" is proper noun. Never translate proper nouns, unless the "owner" (in this case Justisdepartementet) of the word(s) has sanctioned the translation.

Veifraktloven:
Veifraktretten reguleres av veifraktloven av 20. desember 1974 nr. 68
Denne lov er preseptorisk. Som vil si at loven ikke kan fravikes. Dette kommer frem i lovens § 5. Innenriks er det likevel ikke noe i veien for at fraktføreren påtar seg plikter eller ansvar som er mer vidtgående enn det loven foreskriver, eller at det ansvar avsender har etter loven, begrenses eller fraskrives helt. Men loven kan ikke fravikes til skade for avsender eller mottaker.
Veifraktloven har utgangspunkt i – og bygger på – de løsninger som fremgår av den såkalte CMR-konvensjonen (Convention relative au contrat de transport international de marchandises par route) av 19. mai 1956, som Norge ratifiserte (inngikk – gjorde gjeldende) i 1969. I motsetning til CMR regulerer veifraktloven også innenriks befordringer. Reglene er i utgangspunktet de samme, men på enkelte – til dels viktige – punkter er løsningene likevel forskjellige.
