Police in the Greater Toronto Area have launched a truck safety blitz, following at least a dozen tractor-trailer collisions on area roads over the past month.

The blitz began Monday, with police pulling trucks off the road to take a closer look at their overall state of repair.

CBC’s Jeff Semple reports that police are worried that the rising cost of fuel may be encouraging some trucking companies to cut corners.
