The APSC’s Motor Carrier Enforcement Section conducts and carries out investigative, monitoring, and enforcement activities of the Commission to assure and obtain compliance with the provision of the Alabama Motor Carrier Act and associated rules and regulations.
When motor carriers are found to be operating without proper authority or are conducting their operation in violation of established rules and regulations, steps are taken to require compliance. If conditions warrant, violators are arrested and prosecuted in the courts with proper jurisdiction.
Enforcement officers conduct investigations involving illegal operations and violations of rules and regulations, issuing citations and warning tickets when appropriate. These officers also conduct safety inspections of vehicles and have the authority to place vehicles and/or drivers out of service for safety/regulatory violations.
