Maine Motor Carrier Review Board
The Motor Carrier Review Board was created in 1995 to review the records of motor carriers operating in Maine with the most significant histories of truck-related safety violations. The Board is empowered to recommend to the Maine Secretary of State that a motor carrier's right to operate in Maine be suspended.
The Board consists of seven members. Five members represent various aspects of the motor carrier industry. One member is from the commercial insurance field, and one represents the general public. Board members are appointed by the governor, and serve three year terms.
The Board has developed rules to assign points to each type of motor carrier violation. Total points for a twelve-month period are divided by a carrier's annual mileage to yield a relative severity rating. Quarterly, the motor carriers with the highest Relative Severity Ratings are considered for review. The Board may vote to conduct a detailed review, issue a warning, or vote to take no action. Carriers selected for a detailed review receive a public hearing where they may present information to the Board.
In calendar year 2010, the Board conducted 69 preliminary, 30 follow-up, and 10 full motor carrier reviews. As a result of those reviews, the Board issued 29 warning letters to carriers with histories of significant and repeated motor carrier violations in Maine and twice made a recommendation to the Secretary of State to suspend a motor carrier's right to operate commercially in Maine.
