WASAGA BEACH – Two trucks decommissioned and many changes posed during a utility vehicle blitz in Wasaga Beach.

On the morning of Tuesday, June 22, 2021, officers from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Huronia West Detachment conducted a commercial vehicle blitz to ensure safety compliance.

Four trucks were stopped for vehicle safety inspections by certified officers of the Ontario Provincial Police’s Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA). These inspections focus on vehicle maintenance, load safety and required documentation.

Of the four trucks inspected, two were taken out of service for major safety violations. A total of 17 charges were laid under the Highway Traffic Act (HTA) following the inspections.

These fees included:

  • Defective brake systems
  • Inappropriate license classes for commercial vehicles
  • Do not surrender driving licenses
  • Failure to submit a CVOR
  • Fail to complete daily inspections
  • Annual inspections expired
  • Other administrative and mechanical costs

OPP inspectors would like to remind commercial operators that the extension of CVOR certificates and annual and semi-annual inspections has been revoked effective June 1, 2021.

We rely on our professional drivers to help keep the roads safe. More information on commercial motor vehicle requirements is available by visiting http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/trucks/commercial-vehicle-safety-requirements.shtml.

The Ontario Provincial Police are committed to road safety and will continue to participate in commercial motor vehicle safety initiatives and inspections. The public is reminded that if they notice any safety violations involving a motor vehicle traveling on a public highway, they should contact the Ontario Provincial Police at 1-888-310-1122.
