NTLC’s video series, “From Roadside to Record,” produced with funding from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, is perfect for use in CDL related training. They focus on enforcing, prosecuting and adjudicating CDL traffic stops in accordance with federal and state regulations.
The first video is in two parts. Part 1 follows the stop of a tractor trailer for speeding and continues from personal contact with the CDL holder driver, through proper completion of the citation. Part 2 follows the stop of a CDL holder for speeding while driving a personal vehicle.
The third video involves a courtroom scene of a prosecutor and several defense attorneys engaged in realistic pretrial negotiations relative to CDL holders and the presentations of the cases to the court. Discussions include Masking, disqualification, and the prevention of Masking.
The fourth video “The Clerk,” professional videography and state of the art animation is used to follow the journey taken by the Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holder’s conviction from the court clerk’s desk to the state driver license agency (SDLA), to the Commercial Driver License Information Service (CDLIS) and back to the CDL holder’s record in the state of issuance. This professionally produced video explains the transmittal and recording requirements of the above agencies relative to a CDL holder’s conviction thereby ensuring one-driver, one-license, one-record.
