Heavy truck restrictions

Heavy truck restrictions are used in the Region of Peel to protect road infrastructure that cannot bear heavy loads or roads where truck traffic would be unsuitable (e.g. narrow lanes, on or near local residential roads).

"Heavy Truck" definition: a commercial motor vehicle with a weight when unloaded, of three tonnes or more, or when loaded, of five tonnes or more, but does not include a passenger vehicle, an ambulance or any Vehicle of a police or fire department.

Local deliveries and collections are exempt from heavy truck restrictions if the location cannot be reached by any other road and provided that the route taken is the shortest possible to and from the location on the truck restricted route.

Failure to adhere to heavy truck restrictions may result in fines under the Highway Traffic Act and Municipal By-law.
