Equipment Package: Roadside Safety and Security Inspection
This equipment package provides the Commercial Vehicle Check Subsystem the capabilities for operators to automate the roadside safety inspection process including the support of use of hand held devices to rapidly inspect the vehicle and driver. In addition this equipment package provides the Roadside Check Subsystem the capabilities for operators to automate the roadside safety inspection process including the support of automated mainline speed reading of on-board safety data to rapidly screen the vehicle and driver. This equipment package shall also provide the capabilities to collect, store, maintain, and provide safety data and access historical safety data after receiving identification from vehicles at mainline speeds or while stopped at the roadside. Results of screening and summary safety inspection can be written back onto the tag. The capabilities to process safety data and issue pull-in messages or provide warnings to the driver, carrier, and enforcement agencies shall be provided. These capabilities have a prerequisite of the Roadside Electronic Screening equipment package and shall be provided primarily through the utilization of an additional safety database.
Since a vehicle may cross jurisdiction boundaries during a trip, this equipment package supports the concept of a last clearance event record (aka trip ticket ) carried on the vehicle s tag. The last clearance event record reflects the results of the roadside verification action. For example, if the vehicle is pulled over in State A and undergoes credential, weight, and safety checks, the results of the clearance process are written to the vehicle s tag. If the vehicle continues the trip and passes a roadside station in State B, the State B station has access to the results of the previous pull-in because it can read the last clearance event record written by the State A roadside station.
