AUSTIN, Tex. — The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) says Texas needs to push inspection stations closer to the border.
The international enforcement body has written to the Texas Department of Transportation in support of the Department of Public Safety’s position that commercial vehicle safety inspection facilities should be constructed at border crossing points rather than at a location further inland.
CVSA pointed out that any sites other than at the border could have the effect of creating a new and expanded commercial zone that could compromise safety on Texas highways.
Also, CVSA says enforcement procedures should be uniform at all border-crossing sites with Mexico, including location of inspection sites.
