Pennsylvania state and municipal police will target unsafe commercial vehicles during Operation Roadcheck tomorrow through Thursday.
During the annual program, "highly trained and certified state police personnel and municipal officers will be stopping commercial vehicles around-the-clock to inspect safety equipment and check drivers' licenses, endorsements and log books," State Police Commissioner Jeffrey B. Miller said.
During last year's Operation Roadcheck, state police inspected 2,795 commercial vehicles and removed from service the 28 percent deemed unsafe, Miller said.
Officers throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico are participating in the annual program, sponsored by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, whose membership includes law enforcement and safety officials, truck and bus companies, industry associations, insurance companies, and commercial vehicle drivers. - Inquirer staff
