Wrecks could prompt fines in Manitoba

| 12/13/2007

The Canadian province of Manitoba may start holding truckers financially accountable for any damage they do to guardrails, bridges and other highway infrastructure.

Truck News reports that a bill has been proposed, which would impose fines of up to $5,000.

Manitoba’s transport minister however, hopes an expanded driver education program and routing maps that show clearances and weight limits will reduce the need for fines.
