Swiss Heavy Goods Vehicle Control Sites Peer Exchange Meeting

On February 19, 2008, a peer exchange meeting was held in Glendale, Arizona with the intent of exchanging information on technology-based approaches supporting commercial motor vehicle enforcement. Meeting attendees included transportation and law enforcement officials from Switzerland and U.S. counterparts in the states of Arizona and Washington and at the federal level. During the meeting, U.S. representatives described vehicle size and weight management procedures and practices at the federal and state levels. Similarly, Swiss representatives provided an overview of vehicle size and weight management policies and procedures in Switzerland, concluding with a description of their Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) Control Sites. Dr. Jodi Carson, Texas Transportation Institute, presented the results of the 2006 European Commercial Motor Vehicle Size and Weight Enforcement Scan Tour, providing a comparative perspective between U.S. and Swiss (and broader European) vehicle size and weight management policies and procedures. This document summarizes the information that was presented and exchanged among meeting attendees.
