Ontario Provincial Police are concerned following a commercial motor vehicle safety blitz.

On March 29, OPP and the Ministry of Transportation stopped 19 vehicles resulting in 18 charges and 12 being being taken off the road — two license plates were seized as well.

According to a release, the OPP will continue safety inspections aimed at reducing CMV-related collisions.
