DPS joins annual commercial vehicle inspection effort

Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Troopers, inspectors and investigators will conduct enhanced commercial vehicle inspections from June 5-7 as part of Roadcheck 2018, an annual three-day enforcement effort across North America to increase motor carrier, vehicle, driver and cargo safety and security. DPS Troopers will be on the lookout for commercial vehicles, including 18-wheelers and buses, with serious equipment violations and drivers out of compliance with state and federal requirements. “The Roadcheck program highlights how essential commercial vehicle compliance and enforcement is to overall highway safety,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “Drivers of both commercial and passenger vehicles can do their part to help save lives and reduce crashes on our roadways by always practicing safe driving practices and proper vehicle maintenance.” In addition to Roadcheck, DPS periodically carries out additional enforcement efforts in targeted areas where a high volume of trucks or buses may be operating.
