Highway Officers are the primary law enforcement members responsible for enforcing transport regulations for commercial vehicles, including those for weights and dimensions, on provincial highways. If vehicles are found to be overweight, drivers/carriers can be charged for the overweight violation. Overweight charges can be very large fines and driver/carriers need to be aware of the consequences for hauling overweight. The Highways and Transportation Act outlines the consequences (fines) for being found in an overweight situation. Overweight fines are based on the amount of weight vehicles are over the legal limits. The fines for vehicle operators can vary from not less than one hundred dollars ($100) to not more than five hundred ($500).
For exceeding allowed weight
$35 plus $10 each 110 pounds or fraction thereof over legal weight
