September 30, 2013
In light of recent incidents of commercial trucks overturning on Loveland Pass, and in an effort to protect the public and local water supplies, Dillon Police Department officers conducted last week truck inspections that yielded more than 40 violations.
The inspections, which took place last Tuesday and Wednesday along Highway 6 in Dillon, were conducted in conjunction with the Colorado State Patrol Port of Entry.
During the two-day event, law enforcement officers found a total of 40 violations, resulting in 26 violations, according to a town of Dillon news release. In addition, 15 trucks were put out of service until appropriate repairs are made.
The most serious violations included trucks with broken suspensions and tanker trucks with no brakes for the rear trailers, the release stated. Fines for the violations could total $3,400.
Additional commercial truck inspections are planned for the future.
