The latest blitz on speeding and un-roadworthy trucks on the Hume Highway and other parts of NSW has seen more than 400 vehicles stopped, one doctored so it can travel at 140 kilometres an hour.

Police Operation Explorer is the fourth blitz by the Highway Patrol since a truck crushed a car between Mittagong and Campbelltown, killing three members of the same family.

Peter Wells from the Roads and Maritime Service says the government knows its not only truckies to blame.

Mr Wells says truck drivers are relaying accounts of being pressured by suppliers to speed, or lose out, and that's becoming a new focus of investigation.
