EHRENBERG – Personnel from the Arizona Department of Transportation, Arizona Department of Public Safety and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will conduct an annual concentrated commercial vehicle safety enforcement detail March 19-20 at and around the Interstate 10 Ehrenberg Port of Entry. 

Operation Full House, which this year will include more than 50 commercial vehicle enforcement inspectors, is conducted as part of the Arizona Commercial Vehicle Safety Partnership made up of ADOT Enforcement and Compliance Division officers and AZDPS State Troopers. The mission: ensuring safe, secure and efficient commercial transport across Arizona.

The Ehrenberg Port of Entry is located at milepost 3.5 of eastbound I-10, near the California state line. 

The operation will place special emphasis on motor carrier safety regulations, including driver qualification, hours of service and overall safe operation. Personnel will target moving violations, distracted driving and seat belt violations while conducting commercial vehicle inspections to ensure that commercial drivers and vehicles comply with commercial vehicle regulations and state laws.

ADOT’s Enforcement and Compliance Division protects Arizona’s transportation infrastructure and promotes road safety through the inspection of commercial vehicles at the state’s ports of entry and mobile inspection stations. Its personnel also conduct vehicle identification inspections and investigations related to vehicle dealers, title fraud and driver license and state identification fraud.
