According to WKBN, authorities in Ohio and Pennsylvania are teaming up to crack down on unsafe trucks.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol and Pennsylvania State Police Commercial Enforcement last week kicked off a months-long commercial vehicle enforcement campaign to crack down on truck violations.
WKBN reported that officers will be targeting trucks “committing crash-causing violations such as following too closely and unsafe speed.” The officers will be focusing their efforts on Interstate 80.
“Warmer weather is on its way, which increases traffic. When there is more traffic, there will be more cashes,” said Lt. Marvin Hill of the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s investigative unit told WKBN.
Officers in Pennsylvania and Ohio will be communicating across state lines and will coordinate enforcement times and random inspections.
The blitz kicked off last Wednesday and will continue through the summer.
