Motor Carrier Safety

Trooper checks with driver of 18 Wheeler

Motor Carrier Safety teams ensure that trucks and buses meet all safety requirements when operating on Virginia highways. Troopers assigned to the Motor Carrier Safety program regularly present lectures to the public and other interested groups on motor carrier safety and hazardous materials regulations. They also serve as instructors in criminal justice training academies.

The Virginia State Police Motor Carrier Safety Unit works with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to review carriers for the New Entrant Safety Assurance Program for interstate commerce.

For information on the program, refer to FMCSA's New Entrant Safety Assurance Program web page.
