ADOT Trains Mexican Truckers On Safety Inspections

Flat tires. Broken headlights. Cargo that’s not secured.

The group gathered as part of a new program the Arizona Department of Transportation launched earlier this year to help train truck drivers entering the United States from Mexico to quickly pass safety inspections. The free two-day course became so popular, the department added more classes.
