MTO officers to enforce speed limits and moving violations

from OMCA

As reported by Today's Trucking, beginning this spring, MTO will begin equipping its patrol vehicles with radar devices to enforce the province's (truck) speed limiter requirement. Officers will be able to clock commercial motor vehicles and will be able to charge any truck driver traveling at 115 km/h or greater for violating the province's speed limiter law, which requires most trucks to have a functioning speed limit system set at 105 km/h. The radar reading will be used as evidence that the speed limiter is not functioning. In addition, all MTO enforcement officers will be trained and begin to enforce specific "moving violations" under the Highway Traffic Act related to large commercial motor vehicles, including buses. Officers will start to lay charges such as improper lane change, failure to obey traffic signals etc., but speeding violations will continue to be the responsibility of the police. When a bus is stopped for a "moving violation" the officer will also conduct a Level One or Two CVSA inspection on the bus. more
