Commercial vehicle safety is a critical part of traffic safety, especially when it comes to large trucks and vehicles carrying heavy loads. Violations can create serious or life-threatening hazards to motorists sharing the road.

Yesterday, officers spent time inspecting commercial motor vehicles. A portable port of entry was set up on Timberline Road at Nancy Gray. This location was picked because a high volume of trucks use Timberline for deliveries within the city, and commercial vehicles have been known to use this route to avoid the I-25 state port.

During the operation, 85 Commercial Motor Vehicles came through the checkpoint. There were 17 brake inspections, 5 of which resulted in vehicles being placed out of service for critical brake violations. There were 35 total commercial motor vehicle violations found during 16 Level 1 inspections. Officers also issued 21 citations to commercial motor vehicles which failed to seek the port, which is required by law.

This is just one of many efforts to improve roadway safety in Fort Collins. Great work by all involved!
