Police say they’ve laid 17 charges in a commercial vehicle blitz that took two trucks out of service in Wasaga Beach, Ont., on Tuesday morning.
According to officers, four trucks were stopped for inspections, which focused on vehicle maintenance, load security and required documentation.
Commercial vehicle drivers were charged for a slew of offences, including having defective braking systems, having an improper licence for a commercial vehicle, not surrendering a driver’s licence, not completing daily inspections and having expired annual inspections, among others.
Inspectors with the OPP are reminding commercial operators that the extension for CVOR certificates and both annual and semi-annual inspections has been revoked as of June 1.
