Proposed amendments to regulations under the Highway Traffic Act related to mobile cranes and concrete pumps.
Regulation 628 (Vehicle Permits)
Regulation 611 (Safety Inspections)
Bill or Act:
Highway Traffic Act
Summary of Proposal:
MTO is proposing regulatory amendments that will, for a period of 12 months ending June 30, 2018, and for the purpose of vehicle registration:
• Allow mobile crane and concrete pump owners who have not completed a Safety Standards Certificate inspection to declare, via an affidavit:
(1) that the vehicle and its equipment comply with the Highway Traffic Act and its regulations at the time the affidavit was sworn; and
(2) that the vehicle received a modified National Safety Code 11, Part B (NSC 11B) inspection within the last three years, and that the vehicle met the criteria of that modified inspection.
• Mobile crane and concrete pump owners would be permitted to submit the affidavit in lieu of a Safety Standards Certificate.
• A modified inspection includes all inspection criteria outlined in NSC 11B with the exception of a full brake inspection. The full brake inspection is replaced with a limited brake inspection which entails an inspection and measurement of the visually accessible brake components that can be obtained without removing the wheels.
• The affidavit would be valid for 36 days.
MTO is also proposing to exempt mobile cranes and concrete pumps from the requirement to display a yellow inspection sticker as required by Highway Traffic Act Section 85 for a period of 12 months ending June 30, 2018.
