Maryland State Police have launched a multiple-day initiative in and around Baltimore to ensure the safe operation of buses, trucks and other commercial vehicles.
MSP announced Tuesday that inspection teams will be working several locations in Baltimore and on major roads leading to and through the city. Teams will be3 looking for commercial vehicles committing traffic violations and found in violation of safety regulations.
"Spring brings an increase in people traveling by commercial and personal vehicles," Captain Bill Dofflemyer, Commander of the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division said. "This initiative targets the enforcement and compliance of state and federal regulations in an effort to improve safety for all motorists on roads in and around Baltimore by reducing crashes involving commercial vehicles."
State Police have established three temporary inspection sites that are located at M&T Bank Stadium, Fairfield Road and Northbridge Avenue, and Holabird Avenue and Broening Highway. Roving crews will be working interstates leading into the city from the north and south.
