B.C. dump truck drivers must now have in-cab warning devices – Truck News

Under the new B.C. Motor Vehicle Act Regulations, as of June 1, commercial vehicles with dump boxes that can rise above 4.15 meters (13.6 ft.) are required to have in-cab warning devices installed to alert the driver when the dump box is raised.

A vehicle’s height is determined by measuring the distance from the highest point of its dump box when fully raised, to the road surface directly below.

The new regulation applies to all dump trucks operating in B.C., including those out of province, and drivers operating without equipment with a visual or audio warning device may face a $598 fine.

This comes as one of the efforts to prevent infrastructure crashes that continue striking B.C.
