Maryland State Police Truck Enforcement Initiative On Capital Beltway Puts Over 100 Commercial Vehicles Out Of Service

By Alpert Schreyer on May 12, 2016

TruckThere is a reason for the guidelines commercial vehicles must follow and a commercial vehicle enforcement initiative yesterday made that point crystal clear.

State troopers and truck inspectors joined Maryland State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division cadets and officials from seven different police agencies in the inspection of more than 400 commercial vehicles on May 11.  Hundreds of citations and warnings were issued for a variety of reasons including 27 tire violations and one vehicle being 24,000 pounds overweight.

The initiative took place in Prince George’s county on the Capital Beltway and one-quarter of the commercial vehicles were placed out of service.  FedEx Field was the site of the safety and equipment inspections and weight checks as police guided commercial vehicles on I-495/95 into the parking lot.

Once the dust settled, 438 commercial vehicles were inspected and over 100 were placed out of service, which requires repairs to correct the violations before the vehicle can be on the road again.  A total of 251 warnings and 115 traffic citations were issued.

This initiative comes on the heels of another Maryland State Police initiative on the Capital Beltway back in mid-March that resulted in over 600 citations and warnings and, again, 25% of the vehicles having safety or weight violations and being placed out of service.

More of these focused enforcement initiatives are on the horizon in the months ahead.
