Throughout the U.S. penalties for violating load securement statues include fines and even include jail time for repeat or serious offences. In Canada, unsecured loads are an offence under the Highway Traffic Act and subject to fines, jail time and even a licence suspension. If cargo is dropped onto a roadway, drivers are also subject to a fine for littering and the cost of clean-up. In compliance with Canada's National Safety Code, each of Quarantine’s interior and exterior cargo restraint systems is clearly marked with its Working Load Limit (WLL), and is also compatible with the U.S.'s Department of Transportation (DOT) and North American Cargo Securement Standards (NACSS).
