Fremont Surprise Truck Inspection Results

JUNE 13, 2017 (Fremont, Neb.)  — The Nebraska State Patrol, assisted by the Fremont Police Department,
conducted surprise commercial vehicle inspections today, Tuesday, June 13 in Fremont. The surprise
inspections target commercial vehicles that might not travel outside the city or pass through weigh stations as
part of their regular routes.

During the special enforcement effort the Metropolitan Aggressive and Prevention Selective (MAPS) Team
conducted 65 inspections, discovered 201 violations, and took 26 vehicles out of service (not allowed to return
to the road). Vehicles are placed out of service for a variety of reasons relating to bad brakes or tires, or other
problems that pose immediate safety risks. In addition, four drivers were taken out of service (not allowed to
continue driving) for No Commercial License (3) and No Valid Driver’s License (1). Officers issued a total of
$3,385 in fines.

The MAPS Team conducts surprise inspections throughout the year, with more scheduled from the spring
through fall in cities and towns across Nebraska.

The MAPS Team is funded largely by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Troopers check for
compliance with federal safety regulations and enforce laws pertaining to weight, size, registration, dyed fuels,
and permits associated with commercial vehicles. The MAPS Team was implemented in 1998 and consists of
troopers from the Nebraska State Patrol Carrier Enforcement Division. On average, 20-24 troopers work each
MAPS event.
