Officer-Assisted Vehicle Escort Payments

Beginning Dec. 7, 2009, as required by the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS), payment for DPS officers performing oversize-overweight vehicle escorts must be made electronically.

To meet this payment requirement, we have developed a new online service called EZ DPS Escorts, which will replace the current paper-based manual billing process.

On completion of the officer-assisted vehicle escort, DPS, using EZ DPS Escorts, will electronically bill the carrier for total escort expenses incurred, plus a $4.00 administrative fee for each transaction. These fees will automatically be charged to the carrier's ServiceArizona EZ Pay Account.

Companies currently using the EZ Motor Carrier Services are automatically granted access to EZ DPS Escorts.

Companies that do not have access to the electronic services must contact the ServiceArizona Business Coordinator at 602.712.4039 or by e-mailing sazbc@azdot.gov for additional information.
