Commercial Vehicle Team

The VPD Commercial Vehicle Team has been responding to concerns about commercial vehicle safety since September of 1992. They work with community and industry partners and improve road safety through roadside inspections and enforcing any laws relating to the movement and maintenance of commercial vehicles.

This includes:

Team members are trained in air-brake system operations, inspection and enforcement, and act as a resource to other officers in the Department.

As well, all members are trained and designated as Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) inspectors, following standards that apply to all commercial vehicles in North America.

This gives them the authority to remove vehicles from the road that are unsafe and do not comply with minimum safety standards.
