Roadcheck 2006 Begins

by Ramonica R. Jones

Roadcheck 2006 began Tuesday across the state. The Texas Department of Public Safety will target commercial vehicles. They'll be checking for safety equipment, driver's log books, and the proper permits. Troopers will also be looking for signs of alcohol and drug use.

Last year's campaign led to the inspection of almost 6,000 vehicles in Texas. DPS troopers removed about 1,500 vehicles and 200 drivers from Texas highways because of safety violations.

Roadcheck 2006 started Tuesday and continues through Thursday.
