IRP & IFTA History and 101 (Part 1)
In this session, IRP will provide a brief overview of the IRP—including a video explaining the history and some specifics of the plan, a brief explanation of the IRP Clearinghouse and how the data contained within it could be of benefit to law enforcement. IFTA will provide a brief overview of the IFTA and explain some specifics of the agreement, as well as a short explanation of the IFTA Clearinghouse and how the data is made available through NLETS for use by law enforcement at the roadside.
Partnership with Law Enforcement (Part 2)
This portion of the program will focus on the importance of a good working relationship between law enforcement and the administrative agencies responsible for administering the IRP and IFTA programs. Revenue generated through both programs and how important they are to highway infrastructure and highway safety programs will also be discussed. In addition, there will be a presentation on the different IRP and IFTA credentials, what they mean and how they are to be displayed—and what is required to be on the vehicle or carried in the vehicle.
11:45 am–1:15 pm
Lunch on Your Own
Identify Non-Compliance Issues or Problems (Part 3)
In this practical session, you’ll learn how to identify known compliance problems or issues and discuss the use of the PRISM targeted file. Chameleon or reincarnated carriers as they relate to IRP and IFTA will also be examined, including why a motor carrier would reincarnate themselves from the IRP or IFTA perspective. The issue of tying issues of non-compliance with regard to safety to non-compliance in other motor carrier areas such as IRP and IFTA will also be addressed.
Wrap Roundtable Discussion (Part 4)
Come ready to share your feedback and comments! This is an interactive discussion on how to improve partnerships between the administrative side and law enforcement. What additional data is needed at the roadside? How should the data be made available? What data sources are available to law enforcement? These and other questions will be on the table.
