A truck driver caught swerving on an Oakville road is now off duty and facing charges.
Halton Regional Police Force. Marc Taraso observed the driver of the straight truck swerve Thursday (October 13) on Dundas Street.
Cst. Taraso says he noticed the driver was on his cell phone talking to someone while he was driving before pulling him over.
He performed a “Level 1” inspection and found that there was no pre-trip inspection on the truck or a commercial vehicle operator’s registration certificate.
The inspection also revealed an inoperative parking brake, the steer axle tire sidewall cut bead was exposed, and the Registered Gross Weight (RGW), which determines fees paid for truck license plates, was 500 kg overweight.
Cst. Taraso says the driver is facing “charges” and the truck is now “out of service”.
