Motor Carrier Safety Assitance Program (MCSAP)

Created with federal aid, the MCSAP's goal is to reduce the number and severity of accident and hazardous materials incidents involving commercial motor vehicles (CMV). Regular safety checks increase the likelihood that safety defects, driver deficiences, and unsafe motor carrier practices will be detected and corrected before they become a contributing factor to accidents. Plumstead officers participate in a multi-agency task force which performs regular commercial vehicle safety inspections.
