State police targeting unsafe trucks, buses in 72-hour enforcement campaign
Starting Tuesday, New Hampshire state police are joining agencies across the United States, Canada and Mexico in a 72-hour effort to ensure trucks and buses are operating safely.
"Roadcheck" is an international effort coordinated by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) and occurs annually in June.
State police will be joined by Federal Motor Carrier Safety (FMCSA) inspectors to ensure commercial vehicles operating on the state's highways are safe and in compliance with state and federal regulations.
Several specially trained commercial vehicle enforcement troopers from State Police Troop G will be patrolling throughout the state looking for unsafe trucks and buses during the enforcement program.
Troopers will conduct numerous driver and vehicle inspections to check for compliance with federal motor carrier safety and hazardous material regulations.
Troopers also will be on patrol looking for high risk drivers and vehicles on secondary and rural roads, in addition to numerous fixed inspection locations.
