Park City • Two-thirds of the trucks authorities inspected during a safety sting here last week were ordered off the road based on equipment violations, the Park City Police Department said, a percentage the police acknowledge is disconcerting.

Phil Kirk, a police captain who was involved in the operation, said 18 trucks — primarily dump trucks — were inspected. Of those, 12 were removed from service based on the inspection results.
