YORK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Trucks traveling along the nation's highways will get be subject to roadside inspections this week.
There are six inspection stations set up in Maine as part of Roadcheck 2011. Members of the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit go over drivers' paperwork and give their vehicles a bumper-to-bumper inspection. State police say the most common issues they find are logbook violations and brake problems.
The inspections are well-publicized. Police say the annual event reminds truckers and trucking companies to make sure everything is in order.
"For the most part everybody does a really good job. Nobody wants to drive an unsafe truck or be an unsafe driver, but sometimes bad choices are made," Lt. Thomas Kelly tells NEWS CENTER.
Roadcheck 2011 checks are also set up in Canada and Mexico. The safety checks continue through Thursday.
