CT Hands Out Truck Safety Violation Fines

Connecticut inspectors on Monday, September 17, stopped 110 trucks and found 375 mechanical violations and 139 driver violations. They pulled 38 vehicles out of service and handed out more than $23,000 in fines. The biggest fine was a $13,536 ticket for an oversized vehicle stopped on Route 25 in Monroe. Inspectors found the rig did not have a required permit.  The inspections and fines was in response to the truck accident on Avon Mountain last week that resulted in multiple people being injured and the truck crashing into a furniture store.
