The Castaic Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility(CVEF) has a long tradition of promoting and enforcing the rules and regulations governing the commercial industry, as well as those of the general motoring public. We remain committed to our mission of safety, service, and security within the commercial industry as well as the citizens of California.
Since 1962 , the Castaic CVEF has been an inital point of contact for the members of the public requesing information regarding traffic laws, roadway and weather conditions along the I-5 corridor in northern Los Angeles County, as well as members of the trucking industry seeking verification of their compliance with commercial regulations. On average we process over 6,000 commercial vehicles through this Facility every 24 hours. In doing so, our personnel are able to conduct inspections of drivers' qualifications, hours of service, registration, height, weight, and loading, as well as ensure the mechanical integrity of the commercial vehicles being inspected. The hard work and dedication of the Castaic CVEF personnel helps to ensure our success in fulfilling the California Highway Patrols' mission.
Additionally, the Castaic CVEF assists the local CHP Area offices within its demographic region to meet the needs of the community they serve by providing commercial enforcement services, education, and training both at the local and state levels. 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; therefore it is imperative that traffic collisions and incidents attributed to mechanical defects, driver qualifications, or excessive driving hours, be reduced.
