New Mexico Officers Crackdown on Commercial Traffic

March 11, 2013

Officers with the state Motor Transportation Police say a three-day crackdown on commercial traffic has spurred dozens of citations.

The operation at the San Jon port of entry in eastern New Mexico earlier this week resulted in a total of 86 citations, and 14 drivers and 47 commercial vehicles were removed from the roads due to serious safety violations.

Officers also arrested one person on an outstanding bench warrant.

In all, Motor Transportation Police conducted 263 safety inspections between Monday and Wednesday.

The agency says it will continue conducting these kinds of special operations around the state to ensure commercial drivers and their vehicles are operating safely.
