A total of 62 commercial motor vehicles were stopped and inspected. Officers issued 15 infractions for a variety of mechanical issues.
The Connecticut Department of Revenue Services cited a local home oil delivery company for using home heating oil, instead of diesel fuel. Heating oil is less expensive, due to fewer federal and state taxes.
