VICTORIA, B.C. — An air-brake blitz by the Insurance Corp. of B.C. (ICBC) last week resulted in 29 per cent of inspected trucks being taken off the road.
Eleven of 29 trucks inspected didn’t make the grade and were ordered Out-Of-Service (OOS), which represents a higher number trucks being placed OOS than a similar blitz earlier this year.
Rick Caulfield, ICBC public relations officer, says that most of the trucks inspected fell into the medium-duty category and were performing pickup and delivery work.
A detailed breakdown of the defects, and the number of trucks allowed to continue on, was not released.
