COLBERT -- Truckers in both Texas and Oklahoma are being targeted by state troopers.

Tuesday, both states began a three-day nationwide safety effort called Roadcheck.

Texas DPS says it will also be watching for aggressive passenger vehicle drivers which it says is the cause of most commercial vehicle crashes.
