Abbotsford/ New Westminster – The Abbotsford Police Department, in partnership with the Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement (CVSE) Unit, RCMP Fraser Valley Traffic Services and the New Westminster Police Department, recently completed a commercial vehicle enforcement and inspection project (“Project Safe Drive”). This project was designed to ensure that commercial vehicles are properly maintained and meet vehicle safety standards.
Over the period of two evenings, log books and records were reviewed, driver’s licenses were checked, and 47 commercial vehicles had full mechanical exams.
CVSE Regional Manager Cole Delisle stated, “This joint event was a great example of partner agencies working together toward a common goal of making the roads safer. We not only achieved that goal, but strengthened the relationships between our organizations.”
These on the spot inspections will be repeated in the future, with all agencies participating.
