ICBC set to participate in 2001 Roadcheck program

VANCOUVER, B.C. — The B.C. Trucking Association is warning truckers to be extra stringent during the period of June 5 to 7.

That’s when the Insurance Corp. of British Columbia will be cracking down on unsafe carriers by participating in the 2001 Roadcheck program.

Drivers will have to ensure their brakes are properly adjusted, or face large fines, according to BCTA president Paul Landry.

Carriers are being welcomed to attend the following weigh scales during this time to have their rigs inspected: Hunter Creek; Laidlaw; Tete Jaune Cache; Golden; Parksville; Duncan and Nordel. Drivers are encouraged to call ahead to determine when they will be holding inspections and to arrange a convenient time.
