State Police Inspect Over 1,000 Commercial Vehicles During Roadcheck

courtesy Michigan State Police

The Michigan State Police announced they inspected over 1,100 commercial vehicles during this year’s Roadcheck enforcement operation which took place June 3-5. The Roadcheck operation is a joint effort of federal, state and local inspectors from the U.S., Canada and Mexico to address safety and security on North American highways.

During the enforcement, officers focused on driver qualifications and compliance, safety violations, hazardous materials compliance and homeland security issues. In total, MSP officers conducted 1,282 traffic stops that resulted in 1,107 inspections and 440 traffic citations during the three day period. One drug arrest and seven fugitives arrests were also made.

Other citations issued included operating overweight, over-sized or for spilling cargo onto the roadway. Over 110 citations were also issued for serious equipment violations and 24 drives were cited for hours of service operations. These hours-of-service violations may be drivers operating over the maximum allowable hours or for failing to maintain a record of their duty status.

The Roadcheck operations are sponsored by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Since its inception in 1988, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance says that over one million roadside inspections have been conducted.
