(INDIANAPOLIS) - Earlier this month, December 5th through the 9th, Troopers and Motor Carrier Inspectors with the Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division participated in a coordinated enforcement detail with other commercial vehicle officer's from the Michigan State Police and Ohio State Highway Patrol.

During the weeklong detail troopers and inspectors conducted Level 3 North American Standard Inspections. Level 3 inspections focus on the driver and paperwork violations. ISP Troopers and MCI's conducted 1,612 inspections and issued 1,499 citations and warnings. Of particular note, 12 CMV drivers were cited or incarcerated for drug and or alcohol violations.

ISP authorities concentrated the enforcement detail on I-94 and I-69 in northern Indiana with Michigan State Police. In central Indiana the focus was on I-70 with Ohio State Highway Patrol and in southern Indiana ISP worked I-65, I-64 and I-69. Michigan State Police and Ohio State Highway Patrol worked together on I-75.

"November and December traditionally see a significant increase in commercial vehicle traffic due to increased shipping related to the Christmas Holiday Season. It is vital for the ISP Commercial Vehicle Division to conduct high visibility enforcement during this period to ensure CMV operators drive within the safety regulations," stated ISP CVED Assistant Commander Captain Jon Smithers. "The regulations are enforced to ensure the safety of everyone operating on the nation's highways. These regulations include actual driving time limits, on duty time limits and zero tolerance for non-prescription drugs and alcohol use."
