By Renee Cowell

(CHATHAM-KENT, ON) – Yesterday, officers from the Chatham-Kent Police Services and the Ministry of Transportation participated in a Joint Forces Operation, conducting safety inspections on commercial motor vehicles that were operating throughout the Chatham area.

Officers inspected a total of 19 commercial vehicles, their loads, and the driver’s qualifications and documentation. Twelve vehicles were taken out of service for having serious safety infractions, and a total of 23 charges were laid.

Police are reminding all commercial vehicle operators that safety inspections will continue to be conducted on a regular basis in an on-going effort to keep Chatham-Kent roadways safe for all road users.
