GREENWICH - State police are taking part in a three-day crackdown on truck safety in Connecticut.

The state has expanded hours at its inspection stations where DMV workers and police are trying to take trucks with safety violations off the road.

Police say they have already found trucks with bad tires, unqualified drivers and overweight loads.

State police warn that driving unfit trucks could cost the driver or owner fines of up to tens of thousands of dollars.
