Highway Traffic Act

Has anyone encounter this before at the weigh stations. Wheel break not equipped with indicator - Commercial motor vehicle. Highway traffic act Ontario Regulation 587 (Pursuant to section 207 (1). It's not the first and won't be last time that trucks are pulled in for inspection but it was the first time we got ticket for this. Ticket is for $490.00 and it was at Milton scale.

We have never received a ticket for this but this is what I found from the Highway Traffic Act Ontario:

(5) Subject to section 5.1, all the wheels of a vehicle manufactured after April 30, 1995 that is equipped with wheel brake air chambers shall have wheel brakes each of which is automatically adjustable. O. Reg. 229/95, s. 1; O. Reg. 405/16, s. 1.

(6) Each wheel brake referred to in subsection (5) that is equipped with an external adjustment mechanism and has an exposed push rod shall have an indicator that indicates the condition of service brake under-adjustment. O. Reg. 229/95, s. 1.

(7) The indicator referred to in subsection (6) must be visible to a person with 20/40 vision who is adjacent to or underneath the vehicle. O. Reg. 229/95, s. 1.

Thanks Salma That's what I found as well but not sure why they started enforcing it all of a sudden and only this time. If it's a regulation in ON only, then it should be enforced on all the scales not just in random at few.
