Commercial Motor Vehicle Traffic Enforcement
The CMV driver and the motoring public are relying on you to use sound judgment and proper safety techniques to safeguard them from harm. Rely on your training and experience, and act in accordance with your departments regulations. Use the tips and techniques discussed in this guide to assist you in making a successful, effective, and safe CMV traffic stop.
Agencies considering expanding their CMV enforcement programs beyond the scope of this guide should contact the State agency responsible for CMV enforcement. It will require dedicated personnel resources, special equipment funding, and ongoing training to achieve the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to certify officers for this enforcement program. More information pertaining to commercial vehicle operations can be obtained by contacting the appropriate State Director, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in your State. (See a list of resources located at the end of this guide.) Additional information is also available through your State police or highway patrol.
