The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office has created a special inspection unit
targeting commercial vehicles. The new enforcement unit will be on the lookout
for tire, brake, lights and driver qualification violations, as well as weight
and speed. Deputies will have portable scales to measure a truck's weight.
Patrols are scheduled to begin by Nov. 1, after deputies undergo special
commercial enforcement training. Coral Springs is the only other local police
agency in the state with authority to stop and cite trucks for weight violations
and faulty equipment.
