State Patrol conducts safety inspections on large commercial trucks

Large trucks driving on the Wisconsin-Illinois border route underwent inspections conducted by the Wisconsin State Patrol on June 4 in an effort to prevent accidents due to poorly maintained trucks.

Wisconsin State Patrol Inspector Craig Hoff said the pro-safety move has become more necessary around the Milwaukee area considering the increasing number of overpasses, foot bridges, and other freeway structures being damaged by large trucks. The safety inspection will involve close examination of all a truck’s features to prevent it from causing serious damage to road structures and other drivers.

Diego Sanchez, a truck driver who frequently passes the Wisconsin-Illinois border said he regularly checks his truck to secure his load and for anything that might cause injury to other motorists, especially when traveling at 65 miles per hour.

Unfortunately, 18-wheeler accidents happen daily in the U.S., making it important for these big rigs to undergo frequent safety inspections to avoid causing injuries to themselves and others.
