State Lawmaker Wants More Motor Carrier Inspectors

A state lawmaker wants to restore funding for state motor carrier inspectors laid off because of budget cuts.

Rep. Dan Forestal, D-Indianapolis, is concerned about thousands of trucks rolling down Indiana's busiest roads that may be in poor condition, making them dangerous to other motorists.

In 2008, Indiana had 86 troopers and inspectors performing daily truck mechanical inspections statewide.

After budget cuts there are now 72.

Forestal said he has asked the chair of the transportation committee, Rep. Ed Soliday, R-Valparaiso, to include the inspector issue on the agenda, but has not been successful.
