The Motor Carrier Compliance Division (MCCD) consists of nine geographic regions with 20 inspection stations located throughout the state. Nineteen of those inspection stations are located on the interstate systems, with one station being located on a Georgia State Route. The primary focus of MCCD is the enhancement of highway safety regarding commercial motor vehicles. MCCD Officers perform in-depth complex safety inspections of the commercial vehicle, its operator, and the load to ensure that they pose no identifiable risk to the safety of the motoring public.
MCCD Region 10 is an investigative unit which operates statewide and is focused on two types of investigations: Investigative Safety Analysis and Safety Audits. The investigative Safety Analysis is an in-depth review of a motor carrier's compliance with the applicable safety/hazardous materials regulations. The Safety Audit Investigation performed on new entrant carriers is a review of a motor carrier's records designed to verify that a carrier has basic safety management controls in place to ensure compliance with applicable Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs), Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMRs), and related record-keeping requirements.
MCCD also oversees the School Bus Safety Unit. This unit consists of 13 MCCD Officers who inspect 20,000 school buses annually to ensure safe travel of children to and from school. MCCD, in partnership with the State Board of Education, currently has an active member participating on the board to continue to build a safer transportation system for the children of Georgia.
In addition, MCCD is responsible for the enforcement of the HOV/HOT lanes in the metro Atlanta area.
