AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety will be partaking in the annual Roadcheck 2017.

Inspectors and investigators will conduct intensified commercial vehicle inspections from June 6 – 8. It’s an effort to increase motor carrier, vehicle, driver and cargo safety and security.

Troopers will be on the lookout for commercial vehicles, including 18-wheelers and buses, with serious equipment violations and drivers out of compliance with state and federal requirements.

During Roadcheck 2017, troopers will also check driver licenses and log books, which document how long the driver has been on the road.

DPS will also be watching for aggressive, distracted, fatigued or impaired passenger vehicle drivers.
