The Impact Of Garbage Haulers

According to Kevin Kirkham of the Ministry of Transport and Dave Rektor of the OPP, garbage haulers have bad records for truck safety, especially  faulty brakes and tires flying off vehicles. Loose or cracked lug nuts can result in tires flying across the road with serious impacts on cars and their drivers. As noted in the October 2016 and November 2016 issues of OPAL magazine, these present a serious threat. CTV news talks about “Flying Tire Deaths”. OPP Sgt. Dave Rektor says "I've seen first-hand the result of wheels flying off and killing people."
