NEWS - Low Speed Vehicles
Transport Canada announces a change to the definition of Low Speed Vehicle to include low-speed trucks that will allow British Columbia-based low-speed truck manufacturer Canadian Electric Vehicles Ltd. to market its LSV across Canada. Low-speed trucks are designed for use such as grounds keeping, landscaping, and in certain industrial and institutional settings such as campuses and resorts, where they can be operated safely.
Road use of LSVs, including vehicle licensing, is regulated by provinces and territories.
Transport Canada continues to remind licensing authorities, as well as manufacturers and consumers, that the safety standards for LSVs do not match those of other motor vehicle classes.
