Conduct Review Policy for Heavy Vehicle Owners and Operators
(4.25 Mb - 86 pages)
The Conduct Review Policy for Heavy Vehicle Owners and Operators ensues from the Act respecting Owners, operators and drivers of heavy vehicles. The Policy is addressed to owners and operators of heavy vehicles registered in Québec, but it also applies to operators of heavy vehicles registered outside Canada that travel in Québec.
The objective of the Policy is to identify heavy vehicle owners and operators (HVOOs) who are potentially at high risk in terms of road safety and the integrity of the road network and to intervene with them. For those purposes, the SAAQ keeps a record on each HVOO registered in the Registre de la Commission des transports du Québec. In particular, the record includes offences committed and accidents that occurred in Québec or elsewhere in Canada. The SAAQ takes preventive action with HVOOs at risk by informing them of the deterioration of their record and encouraging them to improve their conduct.
