In the Liberty High School parking lot, law enforcement officers check some of the 45 commercial vehicles they stopped Wednesday morning on Routes 17 and 28 at Beaelton.
Fauquier sheriff’s deputies and officers from other agencies ordered 22 commercial vehicles off the roads for a variety of safety infractions Wednesday in Bealeton.
The sheriff’s office Commercial Motor Vehicle Inspection Team launched the “inspection and interdiction operation” at 7 a.m. June 26.
“During the operation, law enforcement patrolled Route 17/Marsh Road and Route 28/Catlett Road, conducting traffic stops on commercial motor vehicles,” Sgt. James Hartman said in a press release. “The inspections included general safety for significant vehicle mechanical issues, significant driver issues and transportation of illegal items or contraband.”
About half of the 45 commercial motor vehicles inspected being got “placed out-of-service for critical safety violations,” Sgt. Hartman said.
The operation took place “to ensure commercial motor vehicles traversing the roadways in Fauquier County are in compliance with state and federal regulations,” he said. “The 22 commercial motor vehicles declared out-of-service were parked and required that repairs be made to correct the violations before that they can get back onto the highway.”
The inspections resulted from increased commercial traffic, “most notably on our secondary roadways,” Sgt. Hartman aid.
Participating agencies included the Virginia State Police, Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office, Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office, Haymarket Police, Manassas Park Police, Fairfax County Police, Town of Orange Police, United States Park Police, Washington Metropolitan Airports Authority Police and DMV Weight Enforcement Unit.
The effort included “interdiction teams, consisting of narcotics detectives, K-9 teams and the Department of Homeland Security to search for the transportation of illegal narcotics, firearms and human/sex trafficking and other highway interdiction issues,” the sergeant added.

Distracted driving is probably the most dangerous thing out there, yet I agree with Marie Farra, the roads are full of potholes, and every time I cross a bridge, it's with trepidation. The roads in our state capital Richmond are some of the worst around.
