Jim Sharpe morning show host for KFYI gets right to the issue at the top of the hour.
On her way to work this morning my daughter noticed many law enforcement, dressed in black prepping an off ramp as a checkpoint. The signs being erected noticed all commercial vehicles that they must exit for inspection. Those that didn't exit were chased by motorcycle police and forced to exit at the next off ramp.
The November elections of several cities here in the Valley of the Sun have placed many financial issues the cities face in the background with no candidates making them an issue and the media not asking the questions. But sooner or later the force of the reality of the financial situations in local government are going to boil over into the public conscience... we're just getting a head start :)
I finally got hold of a City Council Public Relations gentleman (Kelly Corsette - Communications and Public Affairs Director at City of Scottsdale) that contacted Sgt. Clark http://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/Police/about/chief/Public_Information_Office
Thanks, Ernest. Just talked to Sgt. Mark Clark at Scottsdale PD & he will be getting back to you.
Thank you for your interest in the Scottsdale Police department’s traffic safety efforts. Our traffic enforcement officers were conducting a commercial vehicle inspection detail in that area this morning. The efforts were to assure compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.
Sgt. Mark Clark
