[ISP] CVED and Gary Police Conduct Safety Inspection Blitz
Start Date: 5/29/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 5/29/2014
Entry Description

Gary, Lake County-Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division (CVED) and Gary Police united again when they conducted a joint Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) safety inspection blitz yesterday.

CVED and Gary PD did an Operation Safety Check on CMV’s on Tuesday, May 20th, 2014 which resulted in their finding multiple truck violations. Another one was conducted yesterday, Wednesday, May 28th, that caught a number of CMV drivers by surprise.

Targeting a three hour span, during the afternoon rush hours, a total of sixteen CMV’s were inspected. Fifty-nine violations were found of which eighteen were out of service violations. There were six insecure loads, seven overweight axles, and six overweight gross axles’ violations that resulted in being towed and two permits were suspended. One driver was driving on a suspended commercial driver’s license.

ISP CVED and Gary Police objective for these blitzes is to promote a safe environment for everyone on the roadways. Trucks that are overweight can cause damage to road surfaces and bridges and is a contributing factor to the formation of potholes. Heavy loads carried on semi’s that are not properly secured, can shift and lead to serious and catastrophic injuries and damage.

ISP CVED Supervisor Sergeant Wanda Clay stated, “I believe with this continued effort by us and Gary Police that we have and will continue to make an impact in promoting truck safety and compliance.”
