|Motor Carrier Stakeholder Roles – What can DataQs do for you?
Grand Ballroom, Ballroom Level
Everyone has a role in improving data quality. DataQs enables motor carriers, drivers, federal agencies, state partners and the public to help improve the accuracy of motor carrier and driver data. Better data leads to safer roads. As a motor carrier, owner-operator or intermodal equipment provider registered as a motor carrier, you should be familiar with your crash, inspection and registration data for two reasons: First, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) uses the data to prioritize enforcement activities. Second, the public can view much of the data in FMCSA’s systems. If you believe data listed on FMCSA websites is inaccurate, this session will review frequently asked DataQ questions and walk you through how to submit a quality Request for Data Review (RDR). This step-by-step process will help you gather the necessary details to submit your request. DataQs allows you to upload supporting documents, automatically routes the request to the correct agency for review and helps you track the request.
|IRP and IFTA
Galleria North, Ballroom Level
The International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) and the International Registration Plan (IRP) represent the two major credentialing programs adopted by the states of the United States and provinces of Canada for the regulation and payment of fuel taxes and the registration of commercial motor vehicles involved in inter-jurisdictional operations. During this session, we will discuss both programs and provide a forum for interactive discussion and updates. Topics will range from the history of the organizations to roadside enforcement of both IFTA and IRP. Come ready to share your questions, comments, suggestions and feedback.
|Truckers Against Trafficking
Broadway Room, Plaza Level
Training provided by Truckers Against Trafficking is designed to further effective collaboration between law enforcement at all levels, but particularly the commercial motor vehicle enforcement community, and members of the trucking and busing industries to close loopholes to traffickers. During this two-hour session, attendees will gain a better understanding of human trafficking and how it overlaps with prostitution; examine case studies which resulted in human trafficking cases, showing trafficking indicators at inspection and interdiction stops; receive tips for employing a victim-centered approach with potential victims; learn ways law enforcement, trucking and busing can work together to fight this crime; receive free materials and training resources they can use within their departments as well as when working with the trucking and busing industries.
