DPS 18-Wheeler checks

Amarillo, TX - Law enforcement will begin ramping up inspections on commercial vehicles Tuesday.

Road check 2010 will run over the next three days. In that time, officers expect to stop thousands of commercial vehicles.

Safety equipment, driver log books, driver licenses and endorsements will all be inspected. Drivers will also be checked for possible drug or alcohol use.

Vehicles that pass the inspections will receive a commercial vehicle safety alliance decal exempting the vehicle from inspection for 90 days, unless they have an obvious safety defect.
