Gary, Lake County-Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division (CVED) and Gary Police joined forces yesterday, Monday, May 19th and today, Tuesday, May 20th in a joint effort to promote commercial motor vehicle safety. Many different types of commercial motor vehicles (CMV) travel on Gary roads especially along the US-12 and 20 corridors.

In this two day span, targeting four hours each day, a total of 52 CMVs were inspected, 112 federal motor carrier violations were found, which resulted in 36 CMVs being put out of service. Twenty nine citations and 15 warnings were issued. There were 16 overweight axles and 5 overweight gross axles that resulted in their being towed for off loading and overweight permit suspensions.

The objective of Operation Safety Check is to help trucking company’s guarantee their drivers operate in a safe manner and have safe equipment to reduce potential liability. Federal regulations establish the criterion for companies to follow for both drivers and equipment to maintain a safe environment for everyone on the roadways.
