Officers Stop Truck with Seized Brakes and Blown Tires

Release Date: December 14, 2017

This week Kingston Police are participating in a Provincial Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) blitz arranged by the Ontario Provincial Police. The blitz is called “Operation Safe Trucking” and was initiated due to the large amount of crashes and fatalities that have occurred recently involving CMV’s.

On December 13, 2017 a Kingston Police Traffic Officer and OPP officer stopped a CMV on Highway 401 after first smelling and then seeing the smoking truck. The traffic stop revealed the rear brakes had seized and two rear tires had blown as a result. Fortunately the truck was stopped before the flattened tires flew off the truck and into traffic. The truck was taken out of service and the driver has been charged with operating a CMV with a major defect.
