As of June 12, 2018, reports indicate that transport truck-related accidents are already up 25% from last year in Ontario. Authorities have indicated that poor vehicle maintenance, lax inspection standards, and unsecured loads may be contributing factors. With the accident rates attributed to poor driving already high, police are concerned that it is only a matter of time before these statistics become a serious public safety concern. A commercial motor vehicle enforcement campaign has been started in order to combat some of these concerns, as the safety of all drivers on the road is of paramount importance.
