AUTOMATED ROUTING AND PERMIT SYSTEM

Bismarck, N.D. - Troopers from across the state traveled to western North Dakota last week to participate in a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) enforcement saturation. The goal of the three-day effort was to identify and remove drivers from behind the wheel who were operating CMVs without proper training and/or licensing authority. The effort resulted in more than 100 citations being issued and 35 drivers being placed out of service for failing to have proper qualifications to drive the vehicle they were operating.
