The Ohio State Highway Patrol will participate in Roadcheck 2011, which promotes 72 hours of continuous commercial motor vehicle inspections throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico starting tomorrow and running through June 9. This year’s theme is “Enhancing Truck and Bus Safety and Security throughout North America.”
During last year's Roadcheck in Ohio, troopers and motor carrier enforcement inspectors conducted 1,966 commercial motor vehicle inspections and issued 4,214 safety violations on Ohio roadways. From those inspections, 454 commercial motor vehicles, and 121 drivers were placed out of service for various violations.
