Commercial Motor Vehicle Enhanced Saturation Enforcement. Canterbury, Epping, Keene, Manchester

On November 15, 2018 members of the New Hampshire State Police – Troop G conducted enhanced saturation enforcement of commercial motor vehicles in the towns of Canterbury, Epping, Keene, and Manchester, 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 Manchester and Epping. The operation resulted in weight checks of 452 vehicles. Additionally, Troopers inspected 163 commercial motor vehicles and discovered 257 violations. Of those violations, 48 were so severe that they created a condition where the vehicle or its driver was placed out of service.

In Manchester, Troopers from Troop G assisted with a commercial motor vehicle crash that blocked all lanes of Interstate 293 South Bound in Manchester for two hours. Preliminary investigation of the collision revealed that a fully loaded 2017 Hino box truck operated by Tommy Rogers, age 33, of Concord, NH was entering a left hand curve as it traveled south when the vehicle began to tip onto its side. The driver attempted to correct the vehicle and was initially able to right the truck, however as the driver attempted to regain control, the box truck rolled over. An inspection of the box truck was conducted by Troopers, who discovered that the vehicle was not over weight, but the load was not evenly distributed. It is believed that this contributed to the vehicle rolling over as it entered the curve.

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

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