So far this year, the Burnaby RCMP, along with 10 partner agencies have conducted 42 planned commercial vehicle enforcement operations across the Lower Mainland in an effort to improve safety across the region.

Road safety is a Lower Mainland priority, which is why these agencies have collaborated to tackle commercial vehicle enforcement with a regional approach. The partner agencies focus on ensuring inspected vehicles are safe to be on the roadway, educating drivers, and enforcing safety violations.

This integrated team has done an amazing job throughout the Lower Mainland. Kalanj said. Expect to see more of these enforcement operations throughout 2022 and beyond.
