Motor Carrier Division
The Strategic Goals of the Motor Carrier Division are:
ZERO CRASHES, INJURIES AND FATALITIES INVOLVING LARGE TRUCKS AND BUSES
- UDOT Motor Carrier Division is committed to safety, and we won’t rest until we achieve zero crashes, zero injuries and zero fatalities invoving large trucks and buses.
- We believe good roads cost less, and through proactive size and weight observation & enforcement we maximize the value of our infrastructure investment for today and the future.
- UDOT Motor Carrier Division optimizes large truck and bus traffic mobility by offering Port of Entry bypass opportunites and incorporating innovative technology and traffic management strategies.
We partner and work closely with the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and in partnership with the Utah Highway Patrol (UHP) in administering and enforcing the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) and Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMRs).
In collaboration with FMCSA, UDOT Motor Carrier Division Safety Investigators conduct on-site and off-site investigations and safety audits. These consist of reviewing a motor carrier’s records to ensure that a carrier or shipper has adequate safety controls in place that are in compliance with applicable Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations(FMCSR’s) Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR’s). Investigations include doing vehicle inspections when appropriate.
UDOT’s Ports of Entry are located strategically across the state, while 8 are staffed full time, we have some that are staffed on a random basis with help from the Utah Highway Patrol. Ports of Entry have many functions, one very important function is the protection of our roads and infrastructure that require vehicles to be in compliance with size and weight regulations. Motor Carrier staff also conduct Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) inspections, that consist of driver only as well as vehicle inspections. These inspections are designed to increase the safety of our roads and the people who travel upon them.
