Trucks, Commercial Vehicles Target of DPS Crackdown

DPS will be out in force the next three days looking for 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles that could be unsafe. Troopers and inspectors will stop drivers Tuesday through Thursday to check safety equipment, licenses, and logbooks.

Troopers will also make sure drivers aren't under the influence.

During last year's three-day campaign, inspectors stopped more than 5,500 vehicles. More than a quarter of those were removed from the road for safety reasons.
