Commercial Vehicle Enforcement allows trained officers to recognize safety issues in commercial vehicles traveling through Pflugerville. This inspection of commercial vehicles helps keep unsafe vehicles off the road.
The Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division weighs and inspects commercial vehicle traffic to obtain compliance with state and federal laws regulating weight, motor carrier safety, registration, transportation of persons, hazardous material, and other property. The CVE Division has joint responsibility with the Texas Department of Public Safety and Travis County Sheriff’s Office, and primarily enforces in the municipality of Pflugerville or the Travis/Williamson County area.
Officers in this unit are trained by the Texas Department of Public Safety and certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in North America Roadside Inspection, Hazardous Materials Inspection, and Cargo Tank Inspection. The enforcement program participates in numerous special operations with the Texas Department of Public Safety's Commercial Vehicle Enforcement unit and several other Central Texas agencies.
The objective of the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division is to:
- Reduce commercial motor vehicle accidents through the enforcement of Motor Carrier Safety Regulations
- Protect the city’s roadway system from unnecessary damage by ensuring compliance with state/federal/local laws regulating the weight of commercial vehicles
- Ensure equitable payment of commercial vehicle registration fees by enforcement of registration laws
