Burnaby RCMP nail 16 dangerous truckers in traffic sweep

The Burnaby RCMP’s traffic enforcement branch rallied the regional troops for a commercial sweet this week.

It took place on Wednesday, with the local traffic unit conducting Commercial Vehicle Checks in Burnabyalong with partners from the @VancouverPD@NewWestPD@deltapolice& Passenger Transportation.

“Once again, many vehicles were found to be unsafe with nearly half of vehicles inspected taken off the road,” Burnaby RCMP tweeted.

Here are the scary numbers:

  • 36 inspections
  • 16 commercial vehicles deemed unsafe and towed away
  • 35 mechanical defects identified
  • 34 violations, including vehicles unsafe to haul cargo

So, according to the math, nearly half of the vehicles inspected were hauled off of the road.
