CMV Inspection Blitz in New Hampshire Nets 394 Violations, 14 Drivers Placed Out of Service
Concord, NH – The New Hampshire State Police (NHSP) is among the first states to release results from last week’s inspection blitz.
The NHSP participated in the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) annual three-day North American inspection blitz known as “International Roadcheck” which was conducted September 9-11.
This year’s focus was on the driver requirements component of a roadside inspection.
According to NHSP, Troopers inspected a total of 225 commercial motor vehicles (CMVs).
Troopers issued 10 CVSA decals to CMVs that passed a Level I inspection where no critical violations were found according to the North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria.
“Troopers also discovered 394 violations, of which 66 were so severe that they created a condition where the vehicle or its driver was placed out of service,” the NHSP said. “In total, 33 vehicles were placed out of service for critical safety violations, while 14 drivers were placed out of service for violations including possessing drugs, operating while not medically qualified, violating restrictions of driving hours, and not holding the proper class of driver’s license.”
Additionally, NHSP reported that Troopers issued 42 citations.
CVSA is expected to release the overall results soon.
