Georgia Officials Release Results From FMCSA’s Recent CMV Enforcement Blitz

Atlanta, GA – Commercial motor vehicle (CMV) enforcement officials in Georgia have announced the results from a three-day blitz earlier this month.

Georgia’s Motor Carrier Compliance Division (MCCD) participated in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) 13-state SafeDRIVE (Distracted Reckless Impaired Visibility Enforcement) campaign conducted October 5-7.




 

MCCD Officers monitored CMV traffic along I-95, I-75, and I-85 for aggressive driving, speeding, following too closely, failing to wear safety belts, distracted driving, and driving under the influence.

Additionally, officials also ramped up enforcement of hours of service compliance, commercial driver’s license compliance, medical certification, and CMV credentialing.

According to Georgia’s Department of Public Safety, officers inspected 682 CMVs resulting in 329 traffic citations.





Additionally, 81 drivers and 58 CMVs were placed out of service.

This was the last of the quarterly SafeDRIVE enforcement campaigns this year.
