About the UCR Plan

The UCR (Unified Carrier Registration) Plan is a program that requires interstate motor carriers to register and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet. This fee helps fund state motor carrier safety programs and enforcement activities.

Carriers subject to the UCR plan are required to submit specific registration information and pay fees based on the number of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) they operate. Failure to comply with the UCR regulations can result in severe penalties, including large fines and potential loss of operating authority.

Violations and Consequences

Carriers that violate the UCR regulations can face significant consequences. When carriers fail to register or underpay their UCR fees, they become subject to enforcement actions by state and federal authorities.

Some common violations include failure to register, inaccurate reporting of CMV counts, and non-payment or underpayment of UCR fees. These violations can be identified through audits, inspections, and data analysis conducted by the enforcement agencies.

Once violations are identified, carriers may be subject to penalties, fines, and additional fees. The penalties for UCR violations vary depending on the severity of the violation and the number of violations within a specified time period. In some cases, carriers may also face the suspension or revocation of their operating authority.

Collecting Fees and Legal Assistance

Officials responsible for enforcing UCR regulations are actively pursuing carriers who violate the UCR plan. They are focused on collecting the outstanding fees and ensuring compliance with the program.
