CALGARY, Alta. — The Alberta Motor Transport Association is reminding drivers to carry their Alberta Safety Fitness Certificate with them at all times.

This comes after B.C. officials have warned carriers that charges will be laid against drivers who fail to produce the document.

The certificate must be shown in B.C so officials can record carriers’ National Safety Code carrier number on enforcement documents.

Truckers are legally required to carry their Safety Fitness Certificate with them at all times, and provide it to any peace officer upon request.
