The mission of the California Highway Patrol (CHP) is to provide the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security to the people of California.  An indispensable component of that mission is an effective and proactive commercial vehicle safety and enforcement program.  The large presence of commercial vehicles in this state results in approximately 30 million miles of travel every day.  For that reason, the CHP has established a goal of preventing the loss of life, injuries, and property damage through an innovative commercial vehicle safety program.  This program encompasses enforcement, education, and partnerships to minimize the disastrous results from collisions involving commercial vehicles.  The CHP’s Commercial Vehicle Section provides assistance regarding the safe operation and enforcement of commercial vehicles.
