The Public Service Commission (PSC) of West Virginia recently released results from this year’s International Roadcheck inspection effort.
This year, Roadcheck took place throughout the U.S., Mexico, and Canada from May 17 through May 19.
According to the PSC, all commercial vehicles entering West Virginia from the Cooper’s Rock exit on I-68 and the Hurricane exit on I-64 were inspected as part of Roadcheck.
During the 72 hour inspection effort, 487 commercial vehicles were inspected in West Virginia.
Authorities say that 444 vehicle violations and 198 driver violations were discovered.
Inspectors placed 62 vehicles out of service as part of Roadcheck. Sixteen drivers were also placed out of service.
“The Public Service Commission’s transportation officers do a great job every day, patrolling and enforcing laws,” said Public Service Commission Chairman Charlotte Lane. “Keeping West Virginia’s highways safe is a critical mission. We are very proud of our officers and appreciate the work they do all year long.”
