DMV inspectors are pulling over trucks and making sure they are not in violation of any laws.

The state Department of Motor Vehicles is inspecting commercial trucks and buses this week to ensure their safety on the road.

Roadcheck 2014 is a three-day annual initiative that includes checking the brakes, tires and lights on vehicles, as well as longs to determine whether drivers are fatigued.

“We can get into the thousands of dollars of fines. We can, more importantly, take the truck off the road and make sure that it’s fixed or repaired before it continues,” Lt. Donald Bridge, of the Connecticut DMV, said.

DMV officials estimate that trucks are involved in more than 1,000 crashes each year in Connecticut.
