The Nebraska State Patrol conducted a surprise truck inspection at 203rd and West Maple Road Wednesday. A total of 77 commercial trucks were stopped and inspected. Inspectors found more than 400 violations and 38 vehicles were taken off the road. Those vehicles were not safe on the road because of bad brakes, bald tires or other safety issues.
It wasn’t just faulty trucks that inspectors were looking for. Four citations were issued for not having a commercial license or no license at all. The Omaha Police Department assisted in the special enforcement.
