Education

Often, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (CVE) Unit troopers are requested to speak on the subject of commercial vehicle safety to groups ranging from truck drivers and safety managers to high school driver's education classes.

There is also a CVE Unit information area at the New York State Fair, and all unit troopers participate in the annual International Highway Transportation Safety Week sponsored by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Commercial Vehicle safety Alliance (CVSA).

The New York State Police has partnered with the New York State Motor Truck Association on numerous projects, including the Highway Watch NY, No-Zone, and Share-the-Road campaigns, as well as the development of pamphlets and flyers designed to educate truck drivers and the general public on highway safety.

Requests for presentations by state troopers must be made, in writing, to Director of Traffic Services, New York State Police, Division Traffic Services, 1220 Washington Avenue, Albany, N.Y., 12226. Please specify the nature of the request, location, date, time, and approximate number of people in attendance. Include a contact name, address and phone number. Please provide at least 30 days advance notice.
