Published:

The Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) released results from a CMV enforcement effort held last week.

From Tuesday, March 21, 2023, through Wednesday, March 22, 2023, the AZDPS Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Task Force (CVETF) held an annual enforcement detail called “Operation Full House” at the Ehrenberg Port of Entry and on I-10 near the Arizona/California state line.

Operation Full House was conducted with assistance from inspectors from the Arizona Department of Transportation, AZDPS, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. 

The purpose of the detail is to provide “zero-tolerance commercial motor vehicle (CMV) enforcement and education … with a focus on CMV driver and vehicle safety, hazardous and collision-causing violations by CMV operators, and passenger vehicles operating unsafely around commercial vehicles.”

During the two day effort, officers conducted 348 inspections and recorded 1,116 driver-vehicle examination report violations.

A total of 80 drivers and 104 vehicles were placed out of service.
