LAKE VILLAGE, Ark. (AP) - Members of the Arkansas Highway Police are conducting checks on commercial vehicles this week to ensure they are safe.

The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department says that, during a three-day event, inspectors check commercial vehicles, their drivers and their cargo. Organizers estimate that 17 trucks or buses will be inspected every minute across the country.

In Arkansas, commercial vehicles will be subject to a 37-point inspection, and the emphasis this year is on whether cargo is secure.

Checkpoints will be near Hope and Lake Village. The highway department says random commercial vehicles will be pulled over, along with any that have obvious violations.

Inspections began Tuesday and will last thru Thursday.
