[ISP] Inspections Identify Inadequate Brakes on Commercial Vehicles
Start Date: 4/22/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/23/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description

Lowell District-Troopers from the Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division will be utilizing the Portable Base Brake Tester (PBBT) starting Thursday, April 25th through Friday, May 3rd throughout the Lowell District.

These PBBT evaluations of identifying weak or defective brakes or vehicles with inadequate stopping capability are based on actual brake performance, rather than visual inspection, and can be conducted without crawling underneath the vehicle. The objective of this enforcement is to help trucking companies make their drivers operate in a safe manner and their equipment be in safe working condition.

These evaluations will be conducted throughout the district in the following counties:

  • Thursday-Friday, April 25th and April 26th in Porter County
  • Monday-Tuesday, April 29th and April 30th in Gary
  • Wednesday, May 1st in Jasper County
  • Thursday-Friday, May 2 and 3rd-Lake County

The enforcement evaluation on Monday and Tuesday, April 29th and 30th will be a joint effort with the Gary Police Department.

Sergeant Wanda Clay, Indiana State Police CVED supervisor stated, “We are doing this enforcement to promote driver and truck safety and compliance. We plan on not only using the PBBT but utilizing portable scales to weigh trucks that maybe overweight.”

MEDIA-Anyone who may be interested in seeing the PBBT and how it works while it is in your county please contact Sergeant Wanda Clay at 219-696-6242.
