HCANL Hours of Service Exemption – Vehicle ID Stickers

As all members would know, the HCANL had worked with the Provincial Government, through Motor Vehicle Registration, to put in place an “Hours of Service Exemption” for HCANL members.

On March 18th, 2014, in response to a request to Minister Dan Crummell, the HCANL was awarded an extension of the alternative enforcement regime of hours of service restrictions for commercial vehicles involved in road and related infrastructure projects. This exemption also includes commercial vehicles such as fuel delivery and service vehicles engaged in support of these projects.

In recent discussions with Motor Vehicle Registration we have been attempting to make the enforcement and inspection of the Hours of Service Exemption less onerous. Accordingly we have developed an annual sticker for HCANL members to place on affected vehicles, so they can be readily identified as having exemption status. The 3” x 5” sticker should be placed in the lower, passenger side window / door of vehicle, for easy identification at inspection stations

Going forward Roadside inspectors will be looking for this sticker as part of the exemption enforcement process
If you could please contact myself or Lorraine with the required number of stickers for your company we will get them out to you in the mail ASAP.

Stickers for 2015 will be sent to member companies after our January AGM.
