Burnaby RCMP’s 2022 Commercial Vehicle Enforcement: By the numbers

Burnaby, BC – Road safety is a top priority every year all over the Lower Mainland. In 2022, Burnaby RCMP, along with 11 partner agencies, conducted 43 planned commercial vehicle enforcement operations throughout the Lower Mainland.

These collaborative and proactive enforcement initiatives aim to make the region safer by focusing on safety issues related to commercial vehicles, including mechanical inspections and unsafe driving behaviours.
