Semi Trucks Good for Traffic Enforcement?

Orlando, Fla.— Did you know the Florida Highway Patrol has been using marked semi trucks in enforcement activities since 2014, and it isn’t the only state doing so? For many years the Tennessee State Patrol has used their own version as an education tool and in traffic enforcement efforts.

According to officials, FHP’s Office of Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (CVE) has 3 marked semi-trucks. The semi-trucks are used in various capacities, including traffic enforcement details. The semi-truck driver will observe a violation and radio to CVE Troopers that are working on the detail. The CVE Trooper will stop the vehicle and take the appropriate enforcement action which may include a vehicle inspection. These semi-trucks are properly equipped to initiate a traffic stop; however, they are used primarily for spotting. The semi-trucks are also used to pull our “No-Zone” demonstration trailer used for local outreach and driver education to promote safe driving around commercial motor vehicles.

As reported by the media, specifically News 6, the traffic expert Trooper Steve Montiero confirmed that a big rig with police lights is pulling over drivers in Florida. The big rig has Florida Highway Patrol markings and red and blue lights throughout the vehicle.

Montiero stated that it takes a specialized trooper to enforce certain laws that normal law enforcement officers cannot, and this semi truck is just one of the tools they have to enforce aggressive driving and noncompliance on our highways for the safety of everyone on the road.

The Florida Highway Patrol’s Office of Commercial Vehicle Enforcement is committed to educating CMV drivers on the dangers of driving distracted and other dangerous driving behaviors.

FHP and law enforcement officers statewide remind motorist "If you're texting, you're not driving."
