Yellowstone checking commercial vehicles
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK
Yellowstone National Park rangers and state and federal transportation officials will be conducting safety evaluations of commercial vehicles and operators again this summer.
The inspections are designed to ensure the safe operation and mechanical soundness of commercial buses and trucks on Yellowstone's roads.
Both the vehicle and the driver are evaluated in order to ensure full compliance with federal regulations that govern commercial vehicle operation.
This is the 15th year of the interagency inspection program.
