Day long commercial vehicle check in B.C. Interior yields interesting results

Multiple different units of the RCMP were on the Trans-Canada Highway near Revelstoke on Tuesday to conduct a commercial traffic blitz.

The blitz was done to provide education and ensure there is compliance in commercial vehicle operations. RCMP were there to ensure things such as log books, driver qualifications, sobriety, insurance, conditions of the vehicles, registration, tires, brakes and lighting were all up to snuff.

As a result of the blitz, over 130 vehicles were examined and a number of actions were taken. RCMP had to make a number of charges, all of which are shown below:

  • One criminal code charge for stolen property.
  • One driving prohibition notice.
  • Two vehicles removed from the road due to safety concerns.
  • 33 violation tickets.
  • Ten written warnings.
  • Six notice and orders for vehicle defects requiring repair within 30 days.
Many commercial operators expressed their support and agreement with the action to keep all commercial truck drivers compliant with the MVA and MVAR.
Further such operations will continue throughout the winter to improve road safety.
