TORONTO, Ont. — The Ontario Ministry of Transportation is soliciting feedback from stakeholders as it finalizes Bill 41, which will require all trucks operating in the province to be mechanically limited to 105 km/h.

Comments can be submitted for consideration to the department online by visiting Here.

Alternatively, you can submit suggestions via snail mail to: Carrier Safety and Enforcement Branch; 3rd Floor; 301 St. Paul Street; St. Catharines, Ontario; L2R 7R4.

Comments are being accepted up until Aug. 31. While it’s unlikely the Bill, which has already received Royal Assent, will be defeated at this time, it may still be possible to have some influence on the wording of the legislation or how it is enforced.

The US-based Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association has announced it plans to challenge the legality of the legislation in court once the law comes to fruition.
