OPP check commercial vehicles for load violations during half load season


Opp checking load weight of truck

On March 3, 2021, members of the Grey Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) conducted a commercial motor vehicle enforcement safety blitz throughout Grey and Bruce counties. Dozens of commercial motor vehicles were checked, resulting in one impaired driving arrest, one driver was charged with an overweight load violation and several warnings were issued.

Reduced load restrictions of five (5) tonnes per axle are now in effect on many Grey County roads, (half load season).

Roads are at their most vulnerable in the spring as frost leaves the ground. Load restrictions help extend the lifespan of the road surface by minimizing damage from heavy vehicles. Depending on weather conditions, restrictions are typically lifted around May 1.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
