New WHP Mobile Education and Enforcement Team trucks hit the road
(Cheyenne, Wyo.) – The Wyoming Highway Patrol Mobile Education and Enforcement Team (MEET) is composed of specialized commercial vehicle inspectors whose primary responsibilities are to help educate commercial carriers and drivers in size and weight regulations and federal motor carrier rules and laws while enforcing violations as well.
Outdated inspection vehicles were recently replaced and sent out to the field in Cheyenne and Torrington. The new inspection trucks are technological upgrades from the old vehicles with wireless internet and new computers. Up to four inspectors can work out of one truck at once conducting inspections, issuing permits and checking truck weights and measurements.
These vehicles will be utilized statewide in remote areas that are experiencing increased commercial truck traffic that do not have a Port of Entry nearby to help increase commercial vehicle highway safety. Additional upgraded inspection vehicles are planned to be sent out to other parts of the state in the near future.
