One driver was arrested and charged and eight others had their licence plates seized during a multi-agency commercial vehicle inspection campaign held by Halton Regional Police Tuesday and Wednesday (June 14-15) in Oakville.

Members of Halton police’s District Response Units and Traffic Services were joined in the inspection campaign by Commercial Motor Vehicle inspectors from the Waterloo Regional Police Service, OPP (West Region), and York Regional Police Service.

Statistics from the vehicle inspection campaign show a “staggering” 74 per cent out of service rate.

As a result of the campaign the following results were obtained:

  • 54 Commercial motor vehicle inspections
  • 40 Vehicles/combinations placed out of service
  • 174 Provincial Offence Notices issued (Highway Traffic Act, Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act, Dangerous Goods Transportation Act)
  • 43 Written warnings
  • 11 Part 3 summonses
  • 8 Licence plates seized from unfit vehicles
  • 1 X 3 day suspension for commercial motor vehicle driver with presence of alcohol
  • 1 wanted/suspended driver arrested and charged

Halton police are reminding commercial drivers of the importance of ensuring that their vehicles are maintained to the Performance Standards listed in the Highway Traffic Act, and drivers are reminded to conduct proper pre-trip inspections and report any defects to their operators.

HRPS says it is working to create safer roadways in Halton through enforcement and education.
