During Operation Roadcheck from May 14 to May 16, the Arizona Commercial Vehicle Safety Partnership (ACVSP) conducted 1,093 inspections on Interstate 17 and Interstate 40 in northern Arizona. Inspectors recorded 3,126 driver/vehicle examination report (DVER) violations, resulting in 101 drivers and 183 vehicles being taken out of service. Additionally, 73 citations were issued and two individuals were arrested on felony warrants.

The enforcement covered areas of Interstate 17 from McGuireville to Flagstaff and Interstate 40 from Flagstaff to the Parks rest areas, as well as ports of entry in northern Arizona.

The ACVSP included officers from the Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Bureau and the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) Enforcement and Compliance Division. A total of 94 troopers, officers, deputies, and inspectors from AZDPS, ADOT, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, and the Buckeye Police Department participated in the operation. Additionally, 125 professionals from the Arizona Trucking Association observed the inspections.

ACVSP personnel also collaborated with Walmart in Flagstaff for a two-day “Share the Road” event to educate motorists on safe driving around large trucks.

Operation Roadcheck is an annual initiative led by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), involving CVSA-certified inspectors from Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. who inspect commercial vehicles and drivers at various locations.
