EDMONTON, Alta. — Exceeding allowable gross vehicle weights has earned an Alberta trucking firm a heavyweight $3-million fine.
The company was investigated by Edmonton police after they received an anonymous tip that the company was running heavy. The investigation found the trucking firm made 1,907 trips to a waste facility over a six-week period, exceeding allowable weights on all of them, according to a report in the Edmonton Journal.
The Journal reports the worst violation was 17.9 tonnes over the legal weight while all other loads were at least one tonne over.
