(MARATHON, ON) – Last night a member of the Marathon Ontario Provincial Police detachment observed a transport speeding in a 90 km/h zone while travelling on Highway 17 near Marathon.
A traffic stop was initiated and the responding officer conducted an investigation into the vehicle.
The officer’s investigation revealed that the tractor-trailer unit was not only speeding as well as not having a working speed-limited system.
Preliminary results of the investigation ended with the driver of the transport being charged with:
- No working speed-limiting system.
The vehicle was not in compliance with the rules for large commercial vehicles that are travelling in Ontario. Speed-limiting systems help save lives by preventing the vessel from reaching dangerous speeds.
The Ontario Provincial Police would like to remind the motoring public that safety is everyone’s responsibility. Excellent work P/C Hudders
