Starting July 12, truckers who are in violation could face a fine of up to $500 and/or 90 days in jail. Lack of registration is considered a misdemeanor.
All interstate and international motor carriers including brokers, freight forwarders and leasing companies must be registered.
The fees collected under the program are used for commercial vehicle safety and enforcement programs. Enforcement of the registration will continue after the weeklong check.
