We once had the MTO in for a VOLUNTARY audit of our vehicle… They gave us $900 in fines.
Once again, a government inspection agency - this time the MTO - proves itself to be purely interested in a cash grab, in total disregard of common sense, respect for its "client" base, or courtesy. Ontario Ministry of Transportation, shame on you.

This is the last, we PROMISE, piece of Ministry of Transport bashing we will do for a while. (Give us about three weeks.)
This one if from Mike Detraunt.
Tell us if you are surprised. We aren’t.
“We once had the MTO in for a “voluntary” audit, wanting to make sure we were doing the right thing (with our commercial vehicle): proper book care, tire, safety audits, etc. To my shock after the two day audit, they gave us $900 in fines. That’s right , a “voluntary audit.” True story, be careful with any audits from these guys. It’s a money grab: they have to pay for their existence. Or sorry, I should say, we do.”
