Trucks carrying large loads have very specific requirements when it comes to the way that these loads must be packed. Ontario trucking regulations are put in place to protect others on the road, as well as the truck driver. Carrying larger loads on trucks can allow a driver to reach the final destination faster or in a smaller number of trips than planned. However, overloaded vehicles are much more prone to causing serious accidents on the highway.
The lawyers at McLeish Orlando LLP represent individuals and truck drivers who have been injured due to the negligence of other truck drivers. Our firm serves clients throughout southern Ontario.
Improperly Secured Loads
Loads on trucks must be properly secured at the very beginning of the trip. The inspection process is very particular and detailed. Then, throughout the trip, trucks are required to stop at inspection stations to check the security of the load and determine any changes that may have occurred throughout the ride.
An overloaded truck places excess strain on tires, frequently causing blowouts. It can also increase the stopping distance, manoeuvring time and response time needed to properly avoid a collision.
