  • Abstract:
    The state case study evaluation approach uniquely captured an understanding of the potential of such a system by documenting the experiences, issues, and opportunities of selected key state government personnel from a cross-section of involved agencies. These participants reflect the spectrum of governmental agencies with commercial vehicle operation (CVO) related responsibilities. The purpose of writing detailed state reports was to achieve a general understanding of the CVO responsibilities of the identified agencies and to which agencies CVO tasks are assigned. The six reports contained in Appendix B are the detailed state agency CVO evaluation summaries for each of the six states involved in the Crescent Demonstration Program. Each state report contains a number of sections. The Organizational Structure Section describes how the commercial vehicle regulatory agencies are organized within each state and the key activities performed by these agencies and their various departments. A CVO agency organizational chart is included in every summary. The next section of the summary describes state agencies in terms of their CVO activities. A matrix of CVO functions versus state agency/departments is provided to better illustrate the activities performed. The third section describes the processing involved in performing the key CVO functions. Some of these functions include Commercial Driver Licensing, Vehicle Licensing and Registration, Operating Authority, Weight and Size Regulations, Safety Regulations, Transportation Planning, and Tax Collection. A very important part of this section are the data maps that display the flow of information for a particular function with the key inputs listed under the types of application forms required. The fourth section describes the weigh station activities that occur in the various states. The fifth section is contains a brief listing of the national CVO organizations with which each state is currently involved. The sixth section is another fairly brief section that describes the data collection effort undertaken for each state. The seventh and final section of each of the state reports describes the various concerns and benefits expressed by representatives from each state. As part of our analysis of the issues and opportunities raised by the states, a six page chart is attached at the end of each report showing state representative ratings for specific statements that were provided to them in the form of a questionnaire. The documentation of these issues, opportunities, and impediments may be of immediate benefit to other IVHS CVO projects underway in this and other countries. Finally, this report contains one more summary in addition to the six individual state reports. This is a functional agency assessment summary which is a compilation of the perceived concerns and benefits listed by function rather than by state agency. 211 p.
