ORILLIA, Ont. -- The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) teamed with the Ministry of Transportation earlier this week to conduct a 24-hour commercial vehicle inspection blitz dubbed Operation Corridor.
The results weren’t too pretty. Officers laid 372 charges over the 24-hour period June 14-15. Sixty-eight speeding fines were handed out, 193 equipment charges were laid and 89 trucks were placed out of service.
Last year, 320 charges were laid during the same blitz with 86 of them for speeding.
