What to expect when you are stopped
The Department of Motor Vehicles Truck Squads patrol Connecticut’s highways looking for unsafe trucks, buses, hazardous materials vehicles and their drivers. The squads perform random safety checks and traffic enforcement on the highways and at the states six weigh stations. If you are stopped, you may be subject to a level 1 safety inspection, which is a detailed check of the driver, the vehicle, and its cargo.
When a Roadside Safety Inspection is done you will be given a copy of the inspection report. You must rectify any violations found, sign and email the report to MCSAP.Reports@ct.gov
Failure to return the form within 15 days of the inspection date may result in fines and/or Suspension of the Vehicle(s) Registration.
Guidelines for the various types of inspections can be found on the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance website.
