Courtesy Vehicle Inspections

Hosted by LMTA's Safety Management Council

Don’t let your first interaction with the State Police happen on the side of the road! 

Hosted by LMTA's Safety Management Council (SMC), Courtesy Vehicle Inspections are held throughout the year at weigh stations around Louisiana. These inspections give participants the opportunity to work directly with the Louisiana State Police (LSP) and other station officials with the goal of identifying and educating members of the types of issues analyzed during an inspection.

Each Courtesy Vehicle Inspection starts with breakfast - with both participants from the LMTA and LSP in attendance. These meetings provide a valuable opportunity for drivers and industry members to build a relationship with regulators in a casual and professional environment. Occasionally during these breakfast meetings, a speaker or presenter may be introduced. After breakfast, the group travels to the scales to perform inspections throughout the morning.

Those who should attend: Drivers, safety managers, driver trainers, and all levels of your organization that engage with DOT on a regular basis.
