1-in-10 Commercial Trucks Fail Oregon Inspections
(CASCADE LOCKS, Ore. ) - According to preliminary statistics, 512 inspections resulted in about 1-in-10 vehicles and nearly 20 percent of drivers placed out-of-service for equipment and driver-related safety violations during last week's three-day interagency commercial vehicle inspection at the Interstate 84 eastbound Cascade Locks Port of Entry.
This inspection and enforcement safety effort involving police, highway department truck safety inspectors and trained Drug Recognition Evaluators (DRE), was Oregon's 13th trucker check operation since the program began in 1998 targeting impairment and vehicle safety.
Operation Trucker Check XIII began 12:01 a.m., Tuesday, September 18th, and concluded September 20th, involving a team of law enforcement officers and ODOT commercial vehicle inspectors targeting driver impairments related to alcohol, drugs, or fatigue, and vehicle equipment safety.
