State Police to Step Up Commercial Truck Safety Checks 

Starting Tuesday, State Police will be stepping up their efforts to check commercial truck drivers. It’s an effort to make Maine’s highway safer. The three-day campaign is part of a national program called Roadcheck 2011, put on by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance. State troopers and police will be checking drivers and vehicles on I-95 in Houlton, Old Town, Pittsfield, Sidney, York and Kittery.We’re told roving patrols will also stop drivers on other Maine roads.
