Law en­force­ment

Big Rigs - - NEWS -

HEAVY ve­hi­cle op­er­a­tors and the broader road trans­port in­dus­try can ex­pect im­proved tar­get­ing of com­pli­ance ac­tiv­i­ties by law en­force­ment agen­cies as they op­er­ate across state bor­ders. NHVR chief ex­ec­u­tive Sal Petroc­citto re­leased the NHVR’s fi­nal Na­tional Com­pli­ance and En­force­ment Pol­icy, which in­cluded prin­ci­ples on how agen­cies should tackle high-risk be­hav­iours and non-com­pli­ance in the heavy ve­hi­cle in­dus­try. The pol­icy had been un­der devel­op­ment since Fe­bru­ary and in­cluded sev­eral rounds of con­sul­ta­tion with in­dus­try and part­ner agen­cies. It aligns with the NHVR’s Strate­gic Direc­tions doc­u­ments and will lead to more con­sis­tency around tar­geted com­pli­ance and high-risk ac­tiv­i­ties.
