Patrol releases Roadcheck 2014 results

COLUMBUS – The Ohio State Highway Patrol participated in Roadcheck 2014, which promoted 72-hours of continuous commercial motor vehicle inspections throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico from June 3 - 5. This year’s theme was “Driving the Point Home, Keep You and Your Vehicle in Check.”

During the effort, Ohio troopers and motor carrier enforcement inspectors conducted 1,237 commercial vehicle inspections. Of those, 280 vehicles and 40 drivers were placed out of service.

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) sponsors the annual Roadchecks, with participation by state law enforcement agencies, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada, Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration, and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Mexico).
