Colorado Changes Intrastate Weight Threshold for CMVs

- Colorado is putting legislation in place that will alter the definition of a commercial motor vehicle and raise the threshold of weight under which intrastate vehicles are subject to state’s rules regarding commercial motor vehicles.

Effective March 20, 2017, the threshold will change from 10,001 to 16,001 pounds gross combined weight before loads are subject to Colorado’s rules for vehicle inspections, load securement, and coupling devices. Any vehicles lighter than 16,000 pounds will no longer require a state issued DOT number. This legislation does not apply to interstate vehicles.
