On Wednesday, December 19, 2018 the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department hosted a commercial motor vehicle detail on Wilmington Pike in Westtown Township.

The WEGO PD Traffic Safety Unit worked with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program certified Officers to ensure the drivers of commercial vehicles are proper licensed, certified and that vehicles are properly marked and safe to travel on the highway.

The West Goshen Township Police Department, Coatesville City Police Department, Easttown Township Police Department and Chester Township Police Departments assisted with the operation.

During this 6 hour detail MCSAP Officers made contact with 22 commercial vehicle drivers and 14 violations were identified. There were 2 vehicles placed out of service due to major safety violations involving the trucks.

Members of the Commercial Motor Vehicle Task Force focus on highways where commercial motor vehicles have been involved in serious and fatal crashes.
