CVSA supports new vehicle registration plan
Dec 1, 2002 12:00 PM
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance is supporting a uniform commercial vehicle registration in all states as proposed in an agreement reached recently by the trucking industry — both private and for-hire motor carriers. This agreement, called the Uniform Carrier Registration plan, would replace the existing Single State Registration System (SSRS), and the fees would be used for state truck and bus safety and enforcement programs.
The existing SSRS now applies to only 38 states. While many of the states are using a large portion of SSRS fees for safety enforcement, only the for-hire industry is subject to the fees and carriers have to pay them in multiple states. The Uniform Carrier Registration plan would lower the financial burden on industry because registration would extend to all states and spread the fees across the entire industry.
