DPS Launches Operation Road Check for Commercial Vehicle Inspections

The Texas Department of Safety took part in an operation today that could make residents safer on the road.

Operation Road Check is a 3-day inspection of commercial motor vehicles which haul Hazmat, heavy machinery, and everything in between.

On state highways trucks stopped at check points to have equipment, operation licenses, and loads checked.

If a truck is in violation, the truck is put out of service and parked until the violation is corrected.

During last year’s road check 23% of the trucks inspected were placed out of service.
