Benefits of the CVISN Program

Safety

  • Law enforcement can focus resources¬†on high-risk and non-inspected carriers and operators.
  • With fewer trucks pulling in and out of weigh stations it reduces collision risks for commercial and passenger vehicles.

Simplicity

  • Simplified, automated screening and targeting of high-risk operators improves enforcement efficiency.
  • Standardized data exchange makes for simpler, more efficient workdays for participating motor carriers, drivers, and regulators.
  • Motor carriers can more quickly obtain information from regulatory and enforcement agencies.

Savings

  • It is estimated that commercial motor carriers save $1.25 for every minute that they are not idling in weigh station queues.
  • Automated reporting and record keeping technology reduces costly paperwork for government and motor carriers.¬†
