Law enforcement agencies in Arizona partnered for a three day CVM blitz along I-40 in the northern part of the state last month.
The enforcement effort took place from Tuesday, October 17 through Thursday, October 19, 2023, at ports of entry and across Interstate 40 in northern Arizona, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS).
During the three-day effort, Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) Enforcement and Compliance Division and AZDPS stopped and inspected 639 commercial motor vehicles (CMVs).
Officers discovered a total of 1,779 driver/vehicle violations.
A total of 102 vehicles and 97 drivers were placed out of service.
AZDPS says that the most common violations discovered during the blitz were failure to properly secure loads, brakes out of adjustment, falsifying logbooks, and operating a CMV without a valid commercial driver’s license.
“Troopers and officers will continue working to educate CMV operators and the general public about the importance of safe operation in and around commercial vehicles,” the agency said.
