The North Bay OPP say they’ve investigated numerous complaints this year of commercial motor vehicles having unsafe loads, being involved in collisions and failing to share the roadway.

The latest incident was on Monday, when several eight foot oversized maple logs were located on and near the road, on Highway 63.

As a result, they’ve launched a partnership with the Ministry of Transportation to increase police awareness and to ensure highway safety.

Anyone with information regarding this issue is asked to contact the North Bay OPP at (705) 495-3878 or toll free at 1-888-310-1122 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
