Saskatchewan Highway Patrol

Saskatchewan Highway Patrol is responsible for ensuring trucks carrying goods across the province are operating safely.

  • inspect cargo and cargo securement 
  • check safety equipment and inspection certificates 
  • check dangerous goods commodities being transported 
  • check driver's license and vehicle registrations 
  • assist motorists in time of need 
  • enforce provincial and federal rules of the road 

The Transport Investigation Unit investigates violations within the road transportation industry (trucks and buses). They also performs hours of service audits, weight audits and manages the Shipper Liability Program. In addition, the office maintains an inquiry phone line and provides educational presentations to carriers and drivers.

Check your brakes!

Air brakes out of adjustment can result in the vehicle being taken out of service. Out of adjustment air brakes reduce the braking capacity for large vehicles and further hinder their stopping distance.  It’s already twice as far as that for cars and other smaller vehicles under ideal conditions. This is risky to other users of the road and the driver of the vehicle itself.
