Leduc County, Alberta – Leduc County Enforcement Services, in conjunction with other enforcement agencies, conducted their annual inspection operation of commercial vehicles in Nisku on June 29 and 30.

Over the course of the two-day event, 104 inspections were observed with 35 (34 per cent) commercial vehicles passing inspection, 40 (39 per cent) being taken out of service and another 29 (27 per cent) requiring attention. Vehicles were inspected based on the Level 1 Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance Inspection criteria, a North American standard inspection for all commercial traffic.

“It is concerning to see less than half of the vehicles inspected over the two-day period pass the inspection,” said Leduc County Peace Officer Joel McDonald. “We hope to see this number increase in the future and implore businesses to ensure their commercial vehicles are compliant with the safety criteria outlined by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance.”

In total, 246 ticketable offences were noted and 33 violation tickets were issued.

Agencies involved in the commercial inspection operation included: Leduc County Enforcement Services, City of Grand Prairie Enforcement Services, Red Deer County Patrol Division, Flagstaff County Enforcement Services, Wetaskiwin County Enforcement Services, Strathcona County Enforcement Services, City of Edmonton Community Standards Enforcement, Edmonton Police Service, City of Leduc Municipal Integrated Traffic Services, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement – Leduc and Town of Beaumont Enforcement Services.
