Safety Information Exchange (SIE) programs facilitate exchange of vehicle and driver safety information between states and jurisdictions. Enforcement personnel at check stations can use national database clearinghouses to confirm carrier regulatory compliance data and crosscheck safety assurance information.


Improve the effectiveness of commercial motor vehicle enforcement officers by integrating the function of roadside electronic screening systems with consolidated vehicle and driver safety compliance databases.(03/30/2015)

CVISN technologies that improve carrier compliance can increase safety and carrier efficiency; benefit-to-cost ratios approach 7.5 for electronic screening and 2.6 for electronic credentialing.(03/02/2009)

Using Inspection Selection Systems (ISS) and out-of-service (OOS) history information provided by safety information exchange programs can lead to significant reductions in crashes injuries and fatalities due to heavy vehicles.(03/02/2009)

An Integrated Safety and Security Enforcement System (ISSES) for identifying high-risk heavy trucks was estimated to contribute to crash reductions between 63 and 629, personal injuries between 16 and163, and 7 fatalities per year.(31 January 2008)

An infrared detection system deployed in a mobile van correctly identified vehicles that need to be taken off the road 44 percent of the time; an improvement over using random selection alone.(4/11/2006)

An evaluation of infrared brake screening systems at weigh stations indicated the technology increased the percentage of vehicles placed out of service because of brake problems by 250 percent.(December 2000)

A series of interviews with commercial vehicle operators across the U.S. indicated that truck and motorcoach drivers are in strong agreement in favor of some ITS applications, but have mixed opinions about other applications. (1997)

Smart Roadside Inspection Stations can reduce emissions annually by 6.57 metric tonnes by not performing needless commercial vehicle inspections; compliant carriers saved $89,425 annually.(February 2013)

For the industry data sample provided in this analysis, RSC technology is more effective than ESC technology at preventing rollover, jackknife, and tow/stuck crashes, thus providing greater benefit to society and carriers with markedly lower installation costs.(August 2012)

CVISN technologies that improve carrier compliance can increase safety and carrier efficiency; benefit-to-cost ratios approach 7.5 for electronic screening and 2.6 for electronic credentialing.(03/02/2009)

Using Inspection Selection Systems (ISS) and out-of-service (OOS) history information provided by safety information exchange programs can lead to significant reductions in crashes injuries and fatalities due to heavy vehicles.(03/02/2009)

Most truck drivers who participated in an evaluation of CVISN technology felt that electronic screening saved them time but lacked a set of standards governing inspection selection; motor carriers were concerned with the cost-effectiveness of the technology.(March 2002)

An evaluation of CVISN technologies found that electronic screening techniques that promote compliance with commercial vehicle safety inspections could prevent thousands of truck accidents each year.(March 2002)

CVO inspectors participating in CVISN focus groups felt that CVISN technology saved time, and improved the speed and accuracy of data reporting. (March 2002)

In 2000, a survey of Maryland motor carriers asked them if electronic screening at mainline speeds would decrease unsafe and illegal carriers; approximately 32 percent agreed, 25 percent disagreed, and 42 percent were neutral; 24 percent were willing to participate despite the possibility of incurring more costs.(14 November 2000)

An evaluation of the Maryland Commercial Vehicle Information Systems and Networks program indicated the program would have a benefit-to-cost ratio ranging from 3.17 to 4.83 over a 10 year lifecycle.(November 1998)

A prototype CVO electronic screening and credentialing system deployed on two interstate corridors was projected to have a benefit-to-cost ratio of 3.6 over 20 years as a result of improved safety and productivity for agencies and commercial carriers.(1996)

Commercial trucks without speed limiters had a significantly higher crash rate (approximately 200 percent) compared to trucks equipped with speed limiters.(November 1, 2012)

In Maryland, electronic screening and credentialing systems deployed as part of the CVISN program had an overall estimated benefit-to-cost ratio ranging from 3.28 to 4.68.(November 1998)

ITS CVO applications for automated roadside safety inspections were projected to have a benefit-to-cost ratio ranging from 1.3:1 to 1.4:1.(1996)
