Truck drivers in Norlfolk, Nebraska were surprised by what seemed to be an early 2014 Roadcheck when authorities conducted 80 inspections and handed out over 260 violations this past Wednesday.
The Nebraska State Patrol said they pulled over vehicles that don’t typically pass through highway checkpoints on their regular route. – Recorded violations included a variety of issues such as faulty brakes and tires.
Of the 30 vehicles were rendered out of service, 6 were unable to continue driving because most of them lacked a commercial driver’s license.
