Evaluation of Electronic Enforcement of Motor Carrier Compliance and Safety

This research will be used to identify if electronic enforcement operations will improve the state’s safety and compliance rates enough to offset any monetary investment requirements. In order to determine whether the return on investment for electronic enforcement makes good business sense to Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), the following objectives must be met: (1) determine the current state of electronic enforcement in the United States and what challenges exist for implementation by ODOT; (2) develop an understanding of how Motor Carriers and the public perceive electronic enforcement; (3) identify the safety improvements and other benefits seen in states currently using electronic enforcement; (4) learn what worked well and what didn’t from states currently utilizing electronic enforcement; and (5) list out what technology would benefit Oregon the most and where it should be located to maximize the investment.
