The task force was set up at 7 a.m. at Etiwanda Avenue and Iberia Street, north of Highway 60. It was set up in aims to educate vehicle operators, the motor carrier industry and promote commercial vehicle safety, reportedly, but citations and fees can be considered tough love by most.

Truck and commercial drivers are everywhere we look, and importantly they keep our economy going by transporting the goods they need in order to keep their business up and running. Nowadays, truck drivers blend in to the roadway scenery as we see them so often on the streets and freeways, driving along side us. Unless you drive a large vehicle like truck drivers do, you fail to truly know and understand how much work, as well as effort goes into their job.

Truck drivers need special licenses and certificates from the DMV and other transportation agencies to maintain their ability to drive and work. Enforcement stings like the ones in this article are aimed at keeping other motorists safe by making sure those drivers follow rules and regulations put in place for the overall public safety.
