DPS Conducting Road Checks on Commercial Vehicles

DPS Troopers are out on the state's highways looking for commercial vehicle violations.

We caught up with troopers Tuesday near Abernathy as they were inspecting the vehicle's safety equipment, as well as driver's licenses and endorsements. Last year, DPS Troopers found 126 safe drivers. Tuesday morning, troopers told us they already shut down one truck because of brake failure.

Roadcheck 2004 runs through June 10th.
