CRANBROOK, B.C. — B.C.’s Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement (CVSE) agency has warned truckers that it will be conducting regional enforcement campaigns on trucks operating in the Kootenays, Lower Mainland, Southern Interior, Vancouver Island, Fraser Valley and Northern B.C.
The province issued warnings for operators in each of the jurisdictions via separate press releases this week.
Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Shirley Bond said the province will execute targeted enforcement blitzes in the regions, focusing on load securement and the mechanical fitness of commercial vehicles.
“This summer’s focused enforcement … by our ministry’s CVSE staff is part of increased roadside enforcement right across the province,” said Bond. “We want to raise awareness in the commercial transport industry about safety on the roads, and that we expect safety standards to be met.”
Enforcement activities will take place on major highways and companion roads in each of the regions, the province said.
