Hundreds of out of service orders issued in Arizona during Roadcheck

Published:

On Friday, the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) released results from last month’s Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) International Roadcheck campaign.

Roadcheck took place May 16 — 18, 2023, in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The areas of emphasis for this year’s inspection effort were anti-lock braking systems (ABS) violations and cargo securement violations.

During the three day effort in Arizona, the state’s Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Task Force (CVETF) concentrated their efforts on I-40, I-17, and ports of entry in St. George, Kingman, Topock, and Sanders.

Officers completed a total of 1,060 inspections and discovered 2,374 violations.

Inspectors found 386 ABS violations and 67 load securement violations.

In total, 77 drivers and 176 vehicles were placed out of service.

Agencies participating in the Roadcheck inspection effort in Arizona included the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Arizona Trucking Association, the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, and Apache Junction, Buckeye, Eloy, Tucson, and Sedona police departments.
