Commercial vehicle safety inspections
Submitted By Lt. Steven Petrakovitz, Milpitas PD
During the morning hours of Tuesday, November 15, 2011, several officers from the Milpitas Police Department and the California Highway Patrol conducted a commercial vehicle safety inspection on Montague Expressway near Piper Drive.
In just over two hours, the officers stopped and inspected over 40 commercial vehicles. Officers wrote 21 citations for violations ranging from missing paperwork to improperly operating brakes. Three of those vehicles were ordered out of service for serious safety violations. One vehicle could not be fixed at the scene and had to be towed away.
The Milpitas Police Department and California Highway Patrol are committed to keeping the roadways safe for all who travel on them. These types of inspections are part of a continuing effort by the Milpitas Police department to keep the roadways safe for all.
