Connecticut Launches Truck Safety Crackdown


Connecticut Launching Campaign On Unsafe Trucks The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles announced a campaign to crack down on unsafe trucks and buses.  The campaign will run through September.

Patrols will be watching for reckless driving, speeding, following too closely and unsafe lane changes, Connecticut Plus reported.

Extra federal funding has been provided to put extra patrols in high-traffic, high-crash areas of the state, including Hartford, New Haven, Waterbury and I-95 in Fairfield County.

“Stepped-up safety enforcement is a firm reminder that unsafe commercial vehicle driving will not be tolerated on our roadways,” DMV Commissioner Melody A. Currey  told Connecticut Plus. “A vast majority of truck drivers are safe and professional. Others, who violate the law, threaten the safety of all vehicles on the road.”

Additionally, the Connecticut DMV will be conducting more inspections in the areas of concentration.

Here’s a thought, Connecticut, how about cracking down on ALL unsafe divers who drive recklessly, speed, follow too closely and make unsafe lane changes and not just single-out trucks.
