CVE Taking Part in International Safety Blitz
Date of News Release: 06/04/2012
(London, KY) -- The Kentucky State Police-Vehicle Enforcement will be participating in an international enforcement blitz known as Roadcheck 2012. The event will work in conjunction with Canadian and Mexican Authorities and is set to kick off Tuesday June 5th and last through Thursday June 7th.
Roadcheck 2012 is an international enforcement blitz that is aimed to emphasize both safety and security on North American highways through the inspection of commercial vehicles and drivers. The blitz will be placing special emphasis on brake systems and fatigued drivers.
Officers from vehicle enforcement will be out night and day with extended hours at weigh station facilities, checking vehicles and drivers for compliance of safety regulations. In addition, officers will be conducting roadside safety check points at various by-pass locations in an attempt to check commercial vehicles that are by-passing the weigh stations.
Roadcheck began in 1988 and is an event that is sponsored by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance which is North America’s leading commercial vehicle safety enforcement organization.
