On June 20 and 21, 2016, the Leduc Municipal Integrated Traffic Unit (MITU) conducted a commercial and passenger vehicle compliance check on Highway 2A near 38 Avenue in the City of Leduc.

The Leduc MITU joined forces with RCMP Provincial Integrated Traffic Unit, Sheriff Provincial Integrated Traffic Unit, County of Leduc Enforcement Services, Beaumont Enforcement Services, City of Edmonton Community Standards and the Alberta Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Branch.

This Joint Force Operation primarily focused on the safe operation of motor vehicles on our roadways. Throughout inspections, members located issues such as defective brakes, insecure cargo, improperly labeled dangerous goods, and defective steering components. Over the course of the two days, 134 vehicles were checked and the following was obtained: 18 vehicles passed, 13 vehicles required attention, 41 vehicles were placed out of service, 3 vehicles were towed, one 24-hr suspension issued for alcohol, one Form 21 warrant was executed, 10 federal hours of service charges were laid, four mandatory Court appearances issued, 92 violation tickets issued and 284 warnings issued

The provincial safety focus for the month of June is commercial/passenger vehicle safety. Throughout the month, the Leduc MITU has been conducting random compliance checks in various areas of the City, and unfortunately are seeing an increase in the number of unsafe vehicles being operated on our roadways.

The Leduc MITU is committed to the safety of all road users and citizens within our community, and will continue to utilize education and enforcement techniques to improve the safety of drivers.
