CHP offers courtesy commercial vehicle inspections

As a benefit to local companies in the Truckee and North Lake Tahoe areas, the CHP at the Donner Pass Inspection Facility is again offering an inspection program to local operators of commercial equipment.

During the week of June 1-11 the facility, located on westbound Interstate 80, east of Truckee, will perform CVSA inspections.

Should a mechanical problem exist, it will be identified and operators will be allowed to correct the problem. All vehicles that pass the inspection or re-inspection will be issued a current CVSA sticker good for ninety days.

No citations will be issued during this grace period with prior notification by the operator of his intent to participate in this voluntary program.

“These inspections ensure that commercial vehicles are safe as they roll down the highway,” said Lt. Dave Eckenrode, Commander at Donner Pass Inspection facility “The random inspections performed along the roadside can be inconvenient, time consuming, and costly. We are making this offer to local companies to give the opportunity of having their vehicles inspected at their convenience without the fear of a citation being issued.”

For information and questions regarding this program, contact Officer Pete Christoffersen at the Donner Pass Inspection Facility, 587-1242.
