Pennsylvania State Police made their annual visit to Penn College’s Schneebeli Earth Science Center recently to give students a front-line understanding of the laws and regulations governing commercial traffic on the commonwealth’s highways. Trooper Cory Beaver, along with Motor Carrier Enforcement Officers Dave Kelch and Will Latchet, outlined the extent of responsibility and liability that a servicing technician holds in ensuring that the vehicles they maintain and repair are within guidelines. Diesel technology and heavy construction equipment technology: technician emphasis majors also witnessed an actual roadside commercial vehicle safety evaluation.
