EFFECTIVE NOW – Load Posting Placed On The Keil Drive Parry Bridge – Fines Can Apply

on August 22 | in Ag News | by | with No Comments

Further to my e-mail the other day regarding the 9 tonne load limit on the Keil Drive Parry Bridge which will remain until late 2016.

There are fines that can be given out under the Highway Traffic Act.  Below are the fine structures.

Bottom line – we don’t want to see anyone fined, so please be aware of this load limit.

The Highway Traffic Act has a graduated weight penalty system based on the following:

 

Offence and penalty, Part VIII

  1. (1)Every person who contravenes subsection 115 (1), section 116, 117 or 118, subsection 119 (4), section 120 or subsection 122 (1), (2) or (3) or a regulation made under subsection 123 (1) or a by-law made under subsection 123 (2) is guilty of an offence and on conviction is liable to a fine of,

(a) $5 per 100 kilograms, or part thereof, for any weight in excess of that permitted under this Act or the regulations, where the overweight is less than 2,500 kilograms, but in no case shall the fine be less than $100;

(b) $10 per 100 kilograms, or part thereof, for any weight in excess of that permitted under this Act or the regulations, where the overweight is 2,500 kilograms or more but is less than 5,000 kilograms;

(c) $12 per 100 kilograms, or part thereof, for any weight in excess of that permitted under this Act or the regulations, where the overweight is 5,000 kilograms or more but is less than 7,500 kilograms;

(d) $15 per 100 kilograms, or part thereof, for any weight in excess of that permitted under this Act or the regulations, where the overweight is 7,500 kilograms or more but is less than 10,000 kilograms;

(e) $20 per 100 kilograms, or part thereof, for any weight in excess of that permitted under this Act or the regulations, where the overweight is 10,000 kilograms or more but is less than 15,000 kilograms; and

(f) $25 per 100 kilograms, or part thereof, for any weight in excess of that permitted under this Act or the regulations, where the overweight is 15,000 kilograms or more.  1996, c. 20, s. 28.

 

Simplified, the penalty is between “$5 to $25 per 100 kg in excess of the weight limit posted for the bridge per Highway Traffic Act Section 125(1)”.
