A New Hampshire State Police annual enforcement crackdown took one of every five commercial trucks inspected last week immediately out of service for more than 1,200 violations — ranging from faulty brakes to lumber supports tied on with electrical cords.
There were 30, or about 6 percent of drivers, taken off the road for violations including possessing drugs, operating after suspension or violating restrictions on driving hours.
Officers from Troop G led the 72-hour inspection effort last Tuesday through Thursday as part of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s International Road Check.
