inspection scalesAs a follow up to a report issued earlier this year highlighting state-to-state enforcement disparities around the U.S., the American Transportation Research Institute announced Oct. 22 its Top 10 High-Performance States for Commercial Motor Vehicle Enforcement.

ATRI says the Top 10 is based on 11 metrics calculated on a million vehicle miles traveled scale, including: crashes per MVMT, fatal crashes per MVMT, clean inspections per MVMT, roadside inspections per MVMT, violations per MVMT, out-of-service violations per MVMT, traffic enforcement stops per MVMT, violations issued during traffic enforcement stops per MVMT, red flag violations per MVMT, Crash Predictor violations per MVMT and state funds expected per federal Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program.

The Top 10 are listed below, but CCJ sister site Overdrive has included in its coverage of ATRI’s list analysis of each states based on data proprietary to Overdrive and CCJ. That data also laid the groundwork for CCJ and Overdrive’s work on award-winning the CSA’s Data Trail series. Click here to see CCJ’s in-depth coverage of CSA.
