Visor Cards for Law Enforcement

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) State Safety Data Quality (SSDQ) Program created five quick-reference visor identification cards for use by law enforcement officers.  The cards are laminated and may be placed in the law enforcement vehicle sun visor.  These cards are intended to assist an officer in the process of determining FMCSA's selection criteria for completing the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) section of their State's crash report form.  The visor cards aid an officer in identifying the correct motor carrier, vehicle configuration and cargo body type, the presence of hazardous materials, and commercial driver license coding. 

The graphics shown on this page are accessible for download by your State for the purpose of instruction manual development or to distribute to your law enforcement agencies.

If your State would like to receive a supply of any or all of the laminated cards free of charge, please contact Tony Schafer at
