18.8.1505    SAFETY INSPECTION PROGRAM: PURPOSE AND OUT-OF-SERVICE CRITERIA

(1) The safety inspection program implemented by the U.S. Department of Transportation is intended to focus on those driver-related and mechanical factors most often responsible for crashes involving trucks, passenger carriers, and hazardous material transporters and is designed to remove potentially unsafe drivers and imminently hazardous vehicles from Montana's highways.

(2) In addition to the federal regulations adopted in ARM 18.8.1502, the safety inspection program will follow Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria (April 1, 2020), incorporated by reference. A copy of the North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria may be obtained from the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, 6303 Ivy Lane, Suite 310, Greenbelt, MD 20770-6319 or at www.cvsa.org.

(3) For purposes of this program, inspection may be waived for any vehicle subject to inspection and bearing a CVSA inspection decal issued by state or province using CVSA out-of-service criteria within the preceding 90 days, as identified by color code and corner trimming.
