The primary mission of the Department’s Commercial Enforcement Program is to ensure the safe and efficient operation of commercial vehicles on the California highway system. The dedicated officers and Commercial Vehicle Inspection Specialists assigned to this facility work diligently to prevent traffic collisions attributed to mechanical defects or excessive driving hours involving vehicles and drivers subject to California Vehicle Code Section 34500. The Facility maintains operations consisting of four inspection bays and static weight scales to ensure compliance with weight regulations. In 2017, our dedicated officers and inspectors conducted over 20,000 commercial inspections including vehicles transporting hazardous materials.
Two Mobile Road Enforcement (MRE) officers are based at this Facility to supplement our mission. The MRE patrol vehicles are outfitted with all the necessary equipment to conduct roadside inspections of commercial vehicles whose daily routes don’t take them past the inspection facility.

In addition to inspections and enforcement, our officers and CVIS’s provide education concerning commercial laws and regulations upon request to trucking companies.
