According to a release from the Lennox and Addington (L&A) County OPP, the inspection took place on Thursday, May 23, 2024. Twenty-one vehicles were inspected and 20 charges were laid for numerous offences including:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while under suspension
  • Improper licences
  • Load security and vehicle maintenance issues
  • Electronic log issues
  • Violations of the Periodic Mandatory Commercial Vehicle Inspection regulations

The OPP noted that one vehicle had the license plates removed for serious safety defects.

One thought on “Seven commercial vehicles removed from road in Kaladar

  • I would like to see the names of these carriers published and those of the owner/operators. I think it would make businesses think twice about who they are paying to haul their cargo. If the carrier is the cheapest, then perhaps the reason for this is noted in your piece above. Cutting corners is a terribly risky business in the transportation industry. Drivers and logistics companies alike need to suffer meaningful consequences or none of us are safe on the highways.
