Roadcheck 2014: It’s more than just checking HOS, brakes

CVSA Executive Director Steve Keppler told Land Line Magazine that in the upcoming 72-hour blitz, enforcement will also be checking to see if your trucking company has paid its annual Unified Carrier Registration fee or UCR fee.

The Unified Carrier Registration program requires individuals and companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate or international commerce to register their business and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet. Whether it is a one-truck business or a mega fleet, those fees are due by the end of each year.

If the fee has not been paid, will the truck be allowed to get back on the road without paying on the spot?  Keppler says it depends on the state. To read the full article and see if your state is included, click here.
