Wisconsin State Patrol conducts safety checks on large trucks

As a preventive measure against large truck accidents, inspections along the Wisconsin-Illinois border took place for 3 days, starting Tuesday, June 4.

According to Wisconsin State Patrol Inspector, Craig Hoff, Wisconsin State Patrol officers all across the state, especially around Milwaukee, conducted assessments of the road worthiness of as many trucks as possible, with the primary purpose of providing overall safety for drivers. Hoff also said they scrutinized trucks for brake linings, adjustments, proper tires, width and height before they were deemed safe to head out into the freeway.

On the first day of the inspections,  one truck was pulled over and given 32 citations for safety violations.  Last year, the State Patrol wrote out a total of 4,000 citations for safety violations during this period.

Large commercial trucks need to be in safe working condition when on the road so as to avoid causing an accident. Unfortunately, trucking companies do not always take this responsibility seriously, resulting in many truck accidents in Wisconsin each year.
