The Georgia Department of Public Safety (Georgia DPS) says that a Motor Carrier Compliance Division (MCCD) officer discovered several safety violations on a truck after a dual set of tires struck the officer’s cruiser.
On Thursday, Georgia DPS took to Facebook to share the story as a reminder to CMV drivers to do their pre-trip inspections.
“Let’s talk about bad timing. . . This week, a dual set of tires came off a CMV, and struck MCO3 Walker’s patrol car. The trailer also had four inoperative brakes and a crack in the leaf spring hanger. Motor Carrier Officers encourage CMV drivers to do thorough pre-trips, so this can be avoided,” Georgia DPS said.
