New Realities After 911

 

 

 

 

 

In response to the terrorist atrocities committed against the World Trade Center, Pentagon and Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, and subsequent threats to the transportation system, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has initiated programs to protect the public from terrorists using commercial motor vehicles as weapons or targets. A top priority for commercial vehicle security is protecting the transportation of hazardous materials.

 

Vehicle and cargo security cannot be over-stressed.  Be conscious of the security of your unit and eliminate the temptation of a stranger tampering with your freight.

 

Inspect the equipment and conveyance for signs of tampering that may have taken place and look for any items that may have been hidden on or underneath the equipment or conveyance.

In addition to a cargo seal where required, drivers must install a pad lock on trailer doors and keep trailer locked except during loading and unloading operations.

 

You must lock the tractor when you leave it for any reason.  Always try to keep your vehicle in view when you have to be away from it.  Make it a practice to stay with the load until completion of the loading or unloading process.

 

Immediately report any suspicious activity to local law enforcement authorities via your radio or cell phone.

Always park in well lit areas.

 

You must deliver all extraordinary value shipments directly from the point of origin to its destination.  If this is not possible, you must drop these loads in an approved facility where they will be padlocked and pin locked.

 

Avoid strangers. Be alert to suspicious characters loitering near by. Report suspicious activities to the authorities if  possible.
