TORONTO, Ont. — The province of Ontario has relaxed proposed vehicle impoundment rules for commercial vehicles operated by drivers with suspended licences under its new seven-day vehicle impoundment rules, to come into effect Dec. 1.

Ontario will soon impound vehicles for seven days if the driver is operating the vehicle with a suspended licence. According to the latest rules, commercial vehicles will not be impounded unless: the driver’s licence has been suspended for 100 days or more; the driver has a blood alcohol level of .08 or more; or the driver is in violation of an ignition interlock requirement.

Quarterly driver’s licence verification checks should be enough for fleets to ensure they don’t have their vehicles and cargo impounded. The Ontario Trucking Association and VerX Direct offer such services.
