After a long, cold winter, the Barrie Police Traffic Unit will be focusing on ensuring the commercial motor vehicles that travel the streets of Barrie are doing so safely.
We thank the many responsible commercial motor vehicle drivers that do their part by driving safely.
However, operating a commercial vehicle is a major responsibility. The wear and tear commercial vehicles experience due to the hours they spend on the road means that it’s incredibly important for drivers to do everything they can to ensure their vehicles are safe. These types of vehicles, due to their size, weight, and the types of loads they transport, can have increased potential for serious outcomes if they are involved in a collision.
The Barrie Police Service Traffic Unit reminds all commercial vehicle drivers of the importance of daily inspections, ensuring your vehicle and equipment are safe to operate, and securing your load and cargo.
Along with our policing partners, the Barrie Police Service will be hosting commercial motor vehicle inspection blitzes throughout the summer, as well as conducting regular enforcement initiatives throughout the city.
Unsafe vehicles can be immediately removed from the road, and operators could face significant fines or even vehicle impoundment.
