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 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 Bureau, on a quarterly basis, shall prepare a list of motor carriers that meet or exceed the threshold limits for suspension of their privilege to operate a commercial motor vehicle in the state. The list shall be compiled using Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrations CSA severity weights, adjudicated violations, driver violations and other relevant carrier and driver information. The threshold limit for suspension and warning shall be established by Bureau policy and periodically reviewed.
After compilation, calculation and analysis of relevant data, the Bureau shall select from the suspension list those carriers to recommend to the Secretary of State that their privilege to operate a commercial vehicle be suspended. The Secretary of State shall act on the recommendation of the Bureau within fifteen days. Carriers receiving a notice of suspension will have fifteen days from the date of the letter to appeal to the Board the decision of the Secretary of State.
The purpose of a hearing shall be limited to whether or not the determination of the Bureau to suspend the carrier's privilege to operate a commercial motor vehicle in the state should be upheld, modified or rescinded. The Board's decision shall be in the form of a recommendation to the Secretary of State.
