Truck inspections

It's your call

May 01, 1991

More than three-fourths of the callers to SUNDIAL say that current truck safety measures in the state are not adequate to protect motorists.

Currently, truck owners are required to inspect their trucks every 25,000 miles. The state also makes inspections, stopping trucks randomly on the highways for checks of safety systems. Of 413 callers yesterday, 317, or 77 percent, said they think those measures are not adequate to protect motorists, while 96, or 23 callers, said they are.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as a scientific public opinion poll would be.
