Trucker Hauling Mobile Home Busted With No License, Plates, Insurance and That’s Not All
Red Deer, Alberta – A trucker hauling a double-wide mobile home was recently slapped with dozens of charges when authorities in Alberta intercepted the transport after receiving numerous complaints.
According to an Alberta Sheriffs social media post, the Sheriff Highway Patrol recently received multiple complaints regarding a semi hauling an oversized load traveling north on Highway 2.
The big rig had reportedly nearly caused multiple accidents.
When Sheriff Highway Patrol responded to the scene and intercepted the transport, they quickly discovered much was amiss.
Officers escorted the driver of the truck and escort vehicle to the weigh scales on Edgar Industrial Drive in Red Deer.
During the course of the inspection, a pile of violations were discovered including: neither driver had an operator’s license with them, none of the vehicles had insurance, the vehicles were missing license plates, and the semi even had expired registration.
In all, officers found a total of 40 charges during the investigation and court dates were set in Red Deer.

The semi, trailer, mobile home and pilot truck were seized and towed, Alberta Sheriffs said.
“Officers were relieved they were able to intercept and remove the hazardous transport unit from the highway before any incidents could occur,” the post said.
