Abstract: Commercial Motor Vehicle operations and safety in North Carolina are monitored through the enforcement activities of the Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP). MCSAP is a federally funded grant program administered by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). In North Carolina, MCSAP enforcement activity is carried out by the Motor Carrier Enforcement Unit of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol (SHP). Measurable performance goals and objectives, as well as the specific performance-based strategies carried out in support of these goals and objectives are documented in the state’s Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Plan (CVSP).
