    Truckers driving in Southern Arizona on Feb. 25-56, heads up. Multiple agencies are coordinating Southern Shield 2015, an operation that will be enforcing state and federal laws at full strength.

    Law enforcement and safety agencies will be checking logbooks for hours-of-service violations along Interstate 10 from Tucson to the New Mexico line, according to an Arizona Department of Public Safety press release. Additionally, officers will conduct “walk-around” inspections and check safety restraint usage.

    Southern Shield 2015’s goal is to reduce the number of commercial vehicle crashes in the area. Agencies involved include the Arizona Department of Public Safety, New Mexico State Police, Pima County Sheriff’s Office, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the Motor Vehicle Enforcement Compliance Division of the Arizona Department of Transportation. Tucson, Marana and Oro Valley police departments will also participate in Southern Shield 2015.

    from phoenix to the new mexico state line. it's a 24/7/365 operation. mostly day time though. so it's really nothing new.

    also, i don't think new mexico police have jurisdiction in arizona. unless they're going to hang out right on the state line waiting for one to cross.

    There was a lot of action today from the NM line to I-19S and all the way down to the rest area on 19. They were setting up an inspection station in the rest area. I was wondering what was going on, cars and trucks pulled over every where!

    I think it's especially nice when Deputy Dawg helps a 4 wheeler repack his trunk or suv on the side of the road.......heck he even calls his buddies to check by and lend a hand.........

    And now this group is going to setup shop just for us.......I mean you just never know what could be wrong with the truck.......that flickering clearance light could cause a serious accident........

    Yes sir, life is good
