Enforcement Personnel on the Lookout for Unsafe Commercial and Passenger-Vehicle Drivers During Operation Safe Driver Week, Oct. 15-21

Law enforcement agencies throughout North America will engage in heightened traffic safety enforcement and educational outreach as part of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Operation Safe Driver Week, Oct. 15-21, 2017. Throughout the week, enforcement personnel will identify and issue warnings and/or citations to commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers and passenger-vehicle drivers exhibiting unsafe driving behaviors on our roadways.

Unsafe driver behaviors by CMV drivers and passenger-vehicle drivers continue to be the leading cause of crashes. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) “Large Truck Crash Causation Study” cites driver behavior as the critical reason for more than 88 percent of large truck crashes and 93 percent of passenger-vehicle crashes.

CVSA’s Operation Safe Driver Program was created to help to reduce the number of crashes, deaths and injuries involving large trucks, buses and passenger vehicles due to unsafe driving behaviors. During Operation Safe Driver Week, there will be increased CMV and passenger-vehicle traffic enforcement.

Examples of dangerous driver behaviors that enforcement personnel will be tracking throughout Operation Safe Driver Week are speeding, distracted driving, texting, failure to use a seatbelt while operating a CMV or in a passenger vehicle, traveling too closely, improper lane change, failure to obey traffic control devices, etc.

Operation Safe Driver Week is sponsored by CVSA, in partnership with FMCSA and with support from industry and transportation safety organizations, and aims to help improve the behavior of all drivers operating in an unsafe manner – either in or around a CMV – through educational and traffic enforcement strategies to address individuals exhibiting high-risk driving behaviors.

To find out about Operation Safe Driver Week enforcement events going on in your area, contact the agency/department responsible for overseeing CMV safety within your jurisdiction.

 


By the fall of this year, all NYS MTA bridges & tunnels will be going cashless. The cashless tolls will use E-ZPass, and vehicles without it will be billed by running the vehicles license plate, and will be charged the cash rate without the E-ZPass discount.

New Yorkers who receive three toll violations over the course of five years will have their registration suspended. Keep in mind that when a vehicle with a suspended registration travels over a NYS MTA bridge or tunnel, an alarm will trigger in the law enforcement officers vehicle, alerting him or her of the violator.

Penalties Boosted for Toll Evaders

Both the New York State Thruway Authority and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority are increasing the penalties for non-payment of tolls, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the New York State Bridge Authority are reviewing their policies.

The penalty for non-payment of tolls on such major facilities as the Tappan Zee Bridge will jump to $100 but remain at $50 for the Thruway in general.

At the MTA, the higher penalty will apply to the Bronx-Whitestone, Triborough, Throgs Neck and Verrazano-Narrows bridges and at the Brooklyn-Battery and Queens-Midtown tunnels.

The lower penalty will apply to the Henry Hudson, Cross Bay Veterans Memorial and Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial bridges.

IF YOU RECEIVE A LETTER FROM THE FMCSA...

DON'T THROW IT AWAY!!!


 

Correspondence sent to your place of business that specifically identifies an alerted Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category (BASIC) and outlines possible consequences of continued safety problems. The warning letter provides instructions for accessing carrier safety data and measurement as well as a point-of-contact. This is an early warning sign that if ignored, could lead to a DOT audit!


NON-CDL MEDICAL CARD REGULATION


In most cases, operating a Non-CDL vehicle for commercial use, requires a driver to carry a DOT medical card. Find out if your driver is required by using the link below from the NYSDOT!!!!

BUT....WHAT ABOUT THE HUT?

The NYS Highway Use Tax is required for any truck, tractor or other self-propelled vehicle with a gross weight in excess of 18,000lbs. This tax is imposed on motor carriers that operate on NYS public highways (excluding toll-paid portions of the NYS Thruway). The tax is based on mileage traveled and is computed at a rate determined by the weight of the motor vehicle and the method that you choose to report the tax.

The NYS HUT tax return must be filed on a quarterly basis, starting with the calendar year when you began operations in NYS. If your preceding calendar years total highway use tax is more than $4,000.00, you will be reclassified to a monthly filer. If your prior calendar year’s total tax is $250.00 or less, you may request permission to file once a year. The most convenient way to file is online, and the link is as follows:
