PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona’s Department of Public Safety is participating in an international event to promote the safe operation of commercial vehicles traveling along the nation’s highways.

Officers from several state agencies have already begun checking commercial drivers along Interstate 40 and I-17 and will continue to inspect drivers through Thursday. Officers will be checking drivers for seatbelt violations, signs of fatigue and cargo securement.

As part of Arizona’s 28th year participating in Operation Roadcheck, The Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Bureau is holding training to help provide commercial drivers with the latest rules and regulations. This year the training will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday outside the Little America Hotel in Flagstaff.

The goal of the operation is to encourage commercial drivers to operate safely on the nation’s highways.
