Motor Safety Carrier Inspections

Print

Motor Carrier UpdatedThe Herndon Police Department currently has two officers certified by the United States Department of Transportation as motor carrier safety inspectors. These officers periodically  inspect commercial motor vehicles to insure the vehicles are complying with the federal regulations.

Selected officers are also trained in the enforcement of the regulations pertaining to the weight limits of commercial vehicles. Equipped with portable scales, officers are available to weigh trucks at various locations throughout the Town. Enforcing commercial vehicle regulations helps to keep our roads safer, and contributes to a reduction in costly damages to our roadways.
