USDOT (United States Department
of Transportation) requires a US DOT Number be applied to each side of
all Commercial Vehicles (Any trucks exceeding 10,001 pounds) that is readable
from 50 feet (2" tall in a contrasting color) and in a readable
copy or font. The Decal or Sticker must be applied to the
vehicle (ie - not trailer or fuel tank covers or other removable parts)
and permanently attached (not magnetic or paper duct taped to the door).
Other "Required" Decal Numbers
Also many Commercial Vehicles
have other important numbers that they are required to apply as a decal
or sticker to each side of their Commercial Vehicle. These "Numbers" include
Numbers (Kentucky per mile tax), ICC Numbers (Interstate Authority
), MC Numbers (Motor Carrier Authority) EW Numbers
(Empty Weight) and/or GW Numbers (Gross Weight) and each individual
truck's VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) plus several other unique
What to put on each line if you don't have 6 regulation numbers?
Many use the first two lines for (1) Leased to: and (2) Company
Name. But here are some other ideas.
you travel Colorado or California, we highly recommend installing
the last 8 numbers/letters of your VIN (Vehicle Identification
Number) since, if you do not have the VIN visible from the scale house,
you will be pulled inside -- ugh. It's not worth the trouble - make
sure your V.I.N. decal is on your truck.
3. Also don't forget about
your weight limit decal: GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating), GCWR
(gross combination weight rating), GVW (gross vehicle weight)
Decal Debate among Truckers and Officers?
is some debate among truckers and officers about which numbers need to
be applied to your truck with some saying KYU, ICC, MC numbers are no longer
required. What is the answer? We wish we knew and we really don't
think there is a definite answer since it depends on who pulls you over!
So many are confident they have it figured it out - but many with conflicting
theories. Some err on the side of caution and put every number they
can on their truck. The reasoning is, 'why give them a reason to
pull me over'. Others, who feel a bunch of numbers clutter up their
truck, get by with the 'basics'. Give the answer careful thought
