ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  The Department of Public Safety partnered with the Expo to make our roads safer.

     The maintenance compliance division set up a detail to inspect every motor coach that pulls into Spence Field. 

     They inspected 59 motor coaches and found 109 violations that were fixed before the coaches left last year.

 "What is does is it's the missing link that we need because you can only visually see so many thing and what this does it gives us an idea by measuring the brake performance of the vehicle it actually measures the things we can't see," Sgt. Ricky Gibbs of the Georgia Dept. of Public Safety.

     Public Safety officers says the first thing companies often cut during a tight economy is safety programs.
