QUEBEC CITY, Que. – In June, the Quebec Ministry of Transport advised revisions affecting operators of tankers hauling dangerous goods.
As of June 23, 2005 all TDG tankers in Quebec must have a system to limit maximum speed to 100 km/h.
As of 15 August 2006 all TDG tankers in Quebec must be equipped with at least one of the following items: An onboard recorder system (black box) that records speed versus date/time to monitor driver behavior or an electronic stability system to assist the driver when critical manoeuvres are attempted.
