Law enforcement is cracking down on dangerous commercial drivers in the Midwest this week, according to a report at WKCR.com, Cincinnati.From Wednesday until Friday, state troopers, federal inspectors and IRS agents in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia will be looking for violations on commercial vehicles that lead to crashes. The most common violations are excessive speed, aggressive driving and overly tired drivers. According to the report, troopers are also fining drivers for expired medical cards, no company markings on a commercial truck (violating federal law) and missing emergency equipment.Commercial truck drivers can expect more troopers on the roads, plus more state and federal inspectors at scales and along highways.
