Commercial Motor Vehicle Enhanced Saturation Enforcement

On October 11, 2018 members of the New Hampshire State Police Troop G conducted enhanced saturation enforcement of commercial motor vehicles in the towns of Hampton, Manchester, Shelburne, and Sanbornton, New Hampshire. Members of Troop G are highly skilled Troopers who have received specialized training to conduct roadside inspections of commercial motor vehicles.

Troopers from Troop G specifically focused their enforcement efforts on violations of the State's size and weight laws by deploying semi-portable scales in Hampton, Manchester and Shelburne. The operation resulted in weight checks of 292 vehicles. Additionally, Troopers inspected 115 commercial motor vehicles and discovered 156 violations. Of those violations, 25 were so severe that they created a condition where the vehicle or its driver was placed out of service.

The New Hampshire State Police was assisted in the operation by the Manchester Police Department as well as the New Hampshire Department of Transportation.

The New Hampshire State Police are committed to ensuring safe travel throughout the State and will continue our efforts to reduce collision during the upcoming fall season.
