Commercial vehicles located in Alberta must pass vehicle inspections in order to be compliant with that province's regulations. To pass a commercial vehicle inspection, a commercial vehicle must comply with Alberta's specific mounting instructions for objects attached to vehicle windshields.
The following recommendations do not constitute legal advice and should not be relied upon in lieu of consultation with your own advisors.
Dual-facing cameras may be mounted up to 50 mm from the outer edge of the area swept by OEM windshield wipers.
Do not mount the camera in a position where the device obscures vision in the area swept by OEM windshield wipers. Additionally, do not mount the camera in any way that clouds, damages, or deteriorates the vision area in such a way that driver’s normal vision is materially impaired in the area swept by OEM windshield wipers.
Refer to the Alberta Commercial Vehicle Inspection Manual for a visual diagram of the vision area and the latest regulations.
