TORONTO, Ont. — Police and government agencies are conducting a two-day safety blitz, targeting heavy trucks on Ontario’s roads, according to a report on CP24.com.

Full safety inspections are being conducted on big trucks, from tractor-trailers to tow trucks, and background checks are being conducted on their drivers on roads and highways in the Greater Toronto Area today and tomorrow, according to the report.

Officers are looking for unsafe vehicles, aggressive or fatigued drivers, insecure loads and contraband cargo.

The operation, dubbed Project Spring Cleanup, will be based out of Woodbine racetrack.

In addition to Toronto police, officers from the OPP, Peel, York, Halton, Guelph and Waterloo are involved in the operation, along with the provincial ministries of transportation, environment and revenue, and the City of Toronto bylaw office.
