Roadcheck, an annual inspection blitz of large trucks and buses across North America, will take place June 5 to 7 along major highways in Ontario.
Inspectors will be checking for mechanical fitness, properly secured loads, correct driver qualifications, and complete daily inspection reports and logs.
"Ontario's roads are among the safest in North America and our government is committed to making sure they stay that way,” Bob Chiarelli, minister of infrastructure and transportation, said in a news release. “Tough commercial vehicle laws and effective enforcement keep Ontario's roads safe for moving people and goods across the province."
The province has participated in Roadcheck for 24 years. In 2011, almost 100,000 commercial vehicle safety inspections were conducted in Ontario. Every year, more than $1.2 trillion in goods are moved on Ontario's roads by truck.
In 2009, Ontario made speed limiters mandatory for most large trucks, capping their speed at 105 kilometres per hour.
