Every commercial vehicle, whether prorate plates or IRP plates or commercial truck plates, is needed to be registered under a specific motor vehicle statute applicable in each province of Canada. There might be various reasons why such regulations were imposed on commercial trucks.
In this blog article, trucking professionals from Pioneer Trucking Solutions® will outline some of the main reasons why registering your vehicle with the Canadian government has become mandatory.
1. In Order To Estimate Numbers, Registration Is Helpful:
The first reason is that registering your commercial vehicle allows authorities to keep track of the number of vehicles on the road, which allows them to estimate traffic possibilities by calculating the number of heavy trucks on the road. Apart from that, doing so assists them in identifying any illicit movement of items that may cause bodily or societal harm.
2. By Doing So, Taxes Can Be Collected Properly:
While a registered truck is on the road, it is most likely required to pay for the fleet it employs in advance. Furthermore, the data can assist the government of Canada in determining the precise amount of tax to be collected based on the number of trucks on the road and the weight they carry. All of this minimizes the likelihood of tax avoidance.
3. Helps Government To Regulate Commercial Vehicles better And Keep Up With Their Maintenance:
Many truck drivers in Canada used to disregard their truck’s health and longevity. Truckers, on the other hand, are heavily supervised owing to stiffer laws. This also encourages people to care for their vehicle and its health.
4. It Facilitates Successful Prosecution In Case Of A Crime
It is difficult to utilize a car to commit a crime these days. Because of vehicle registration. The government can punish the perpetrators using the registration records. This contributes to the general public’s overall safety.
In summary, moving commercial vehicles across provinces or even locally is almost difficult without commercial truck plates. As a result, one must register his truck. Contact us at any time of day or night for a more convenient registration. We will be delighted to assist you.
