Commercial Motor Vehicle Inspection Event

Area law enforcement work to ensure that Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMV) are traveling safely throughout Virginia.  Commercial Motor Law Enforcement Units regularly conduct roadside safety inspections on CMVs and follow a thorough process to make sure both the driver and CMV are compliant with state and federal regulations.  Vehicles and drivers that fail to meet these regulations may be placed out of service and cannot continue operating until they comply with the regulations.  Members of Drive Safe Hampton Road’s Specialized Transportation Safety Law Enforcement Subcommittee come together each month to conduct joint inspections and training.
