Professional Guidance When Defending Against Driving Offences Charged Against Commercial Operators Help to Protect Business Viability
Operators of commercial trucks weighing over 4,500kgs. are required to register what is known as Commercial Vehicle Operator's Registration (CVOR) licensing.
Commercial operators, in addition to charges brought against a driver, may be charged for violating by the Highway Traffic Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, among many other laws applicable to roadway users. Typical CVOR concerns include vehicle fitness, overloading, insecure loadings, lackings within logbooks, improper or expiry of licensing, among other things, and all as additional to the charges against the commercial vehicle driver. Charges against a CVOR may be laid by a police officer or an Ontario Ministry of Transportation ("MTO") officer for prosecution within the Ontario Court of Justice per the court rules and procedures prescribed within the Provincial Offences Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.33, including the regulations thereto.
