New Division of Michigan State Police Oversees Commercial Vehicle Enforcement

May 23, 2007

LANSING, Mich. --- The Michigan State Police (MSP) has revised its organizational structure to combine the functions of the former Motor Carrier Division and Traffic Services Section into the new Traffic Safety Division. The new division will mainly oversee commercial vehicle enforcement operations and training for law enforcement officers in alcohol enforcement, accident reconstruction, speed enforcement and the Michigan Vehicle Code. Commercial vehicle enforcement operations concern the enforcement of trucking safety laws, weight restrictions, school bus safety laws and hazardous materials transport laws. "The new Traffic Safety Division represents more than just changes in internal reporting relationships," said Captain Robert R. Powers Jr., commander of the new division. "Joining these two areas enhances the coordination of traffic safety initiatives within the MSP and demonstrates our commitment to keeping Michigan motorists safe."
