N.C. Highway Patrol Cracking Down on Truck Safety Violations

July 28, 2010

RALEIGH, NC - Beginning July 28, the North Carolina State HIghway Patrol will conduct "Operation Road Watch" to crack down on motor carrier safety violations, the Mooresville Tribune reported. 

The two-day "Operation Road Watch" will be conducted on I-77 in Iredell County and focus on conducting safety inspections on motor carrier vehicles. 

In 2009, troopers investigated 5,577 of the 8,641 crashes involving motor carrier vehicles statewide. Of these, 98 resulted in fatalities and 1,839 resulted in injuries.

Interstate 77 has a high volume of commercial motor vehicle traffic. Law enforcement officials hope their efforts will result in fewer serious collisions between motorists and commercial motor vehicles. Troopers will also be on the lookout for motorists driving aggressively around big trucks and ticketing speeders, tailgaters and aggressive drivers.

Road Watch will be conducted in other counties later this year.
