DPS roadcheck program

A nationwide crackdown on potentially unsafe commercial vehicles is underway in the state of Texas.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is taking part in "Roadcheck 2012" that targets 18 wheelers and buses.

For the next three days, troopers will be searching for vehicles with serious equipment violations and drivers not complying with state and federal requirements.

Nearly 8,000 vehicles were inspected last year, 26% of those were taken off the road because of major violations.
