More than two dozen truckers were pulled over during a traffic enforcement sting focused on speeding trucks in Pennsylvania. Of the 27 trucks stopped, 21 were cited for excessive speed, four for headphones that apparently provide sound in both ears (didn’t know this was a thing) and two for seat belt violations.
One driver, when being questioned by police, reportedly showed signs of intoxication. That coupled with the smell of marijuana coming from the truck. After a police K9 alerted to a duffle bag, police further questioned the man, Identified as 31 year old Derick Cheatham, he apparently did not remember where he was travelling from and seemed confused about required paperwork.
Cheatham refused a blood test, and was arrested for driving under the influence and marijuana possession.
According to Reading Eagle, a local news site, a PA State Trooper was using a radar gun to catch commercial trucks speeding. Descriptions of the trucks who exceeded the posted speed by 10 mph or more were relayed to officers placed down the road, who then initiated traffic stops and targeting the trucks for safety inspections.
