FMCSA Partners With Arizona CMV Inspectors on 4-Day Blitz
Phoenix, AZ — The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is partnering with Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) to conduct a major enforcement operation next week.
According to AZDPS, Operation Southern Shield 2022 will take place from Tuesday, February 22, through Friday, February 25.
“The focus of this operation is to target hazardous driving violations, conduct commercial motor vehicle (CMV) inspections, and educate drivers on safe and compliant operation in an effort to reduce crashes involving commercial motor vehicles,” AZDPS said. “Non-commercial vehicles that operate unsafely around CMVs will also be stopped.”
The blitz will be conducted on Interstate 10 from Phoenix to the New Mexico state line, and on Interstate 19 to the international border.
The operation is being led by the newly formed AZDPS Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Task Force, which is comprised of AZDPS Commercial Vehicle Enforcement troopers and Arizona Department of Transportation Enforcement and Compliance Division officers.
