Council has updated the Fee For Service Bylaw for 2017.  The bylaw is available here.  The fee schedule in the Bylaw will take effect Jan. 1, 2017.

Although Farm Vehicles (Class 2) are exempt from the provisions of sections 10 and 22 of the NSC (National Safety Code for Motor Carriers) when carrying bales (IF they do not exceed the posted speed limit or 80 km/hr, whichever is less, and the vehicle is not operated onon any highway or portion of a highway except to cross the highway), they are NOT EXEMPT from Section 5(2) of the Cargo Securement Standard which states:

"The cargo securement system shall provide a downward force equal to at least 20% of the weight of an article of cargo if the article is not fully contained within the structure of the vehicle"

What this is saying is that you MUST secure each bale with strap, with a marked Working Load Limit (WWL) of at least 20% of weight or aggregate weight of each bale or stack of bales loaded on any vehicle.

For example, If you have a sinigle bale that weighs 500 kg you would need to secure that bale with a strap marked with a WWL of 100 kg. 

If you have one strap over two bales that weight 500 kg each, you would need a strap with a WWL of 200 kg. 

If you have a single strap over three bales that weigh 500 kg each, you would need a strap with a WWL of 300 kg.

The fines for an improperly secured load are up to $776.
