The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance is encouraging all jurisdictions in North America to enforce the Unified Carrier Registration for the 2010 registration year.
Starting July 15, all motor carriers, brokers, freight forwarders, and leasing companies operating in interstate or international commerce are subject to the UCR.

Entities based in Canada and Mexico that are involved in interstate or international commerce in the U.S. are also subject to UCR. Forty-one states are participating in UCR for the 2010 registration year and will serve as UCR base states.

"Revenue generated from UCR helps fund safety and enforcement programs which in turn goes a long way to ensuring safer roads and saving lives," said Stephen A. Keppler, CVSA's interim executive director.
