CHP pulled a driver in for a mudflap violation, but found something way worse

That's probably not good.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) says that they’re “saving lives, one inspection at a time” after discovering a dangerous violation.

On Thursday, August 29, CHP – Gilroy Commercial Enforcement Facility shared a Facebook post detailing their encounter with a dump truck driver:

NEW…VIOLATION OF THE WEEK: This super dump crossed the scale in the center WIM. An aggregate hauler with a missing mudflap. It was sent around to the static scale lane for the mudflap violation. While the driver was circling the building, two parties stopped to complain about the brakes smoking. On the static scale lane, we contacted the driver, could smell a strong odor of brakes coming from the vehicle…although no smoke was observed in the WIM or at the static scale lane. The vehicle was sent to bay 2 for inspection…this is what CVIS Robert Cintora found…once again, GREAT FIND, Robert. Saving lives…One inspection at a time.
