Will my US DOT numbers be compliant with federal requirements?
All US DOT stickers, decals, and magnets that we ship out will meet or exceed federal requirements as per A Motor Carrier’s Guide to Improving Highway Safety 12/09
According to the US DOT safety regulations under code 390.21 Vehicle Identification “Every commercial motor vehicle operated by a motor carrier in interstate commerce must be marked, on BOTH sides of vehicle, with the following:”
- The motor carrier’s name or trade name
- The motor carrier’s identification number, preceded by “US DOT”
- The size, shape and color markings must be in letters that contrast sharply in color with the background on which the letters are placed
- The lettering must be readily legible during day light hours, from a distance of 50 feet
