Your CA or CHP regulation number needs to be a minimum of at least 2 inches and must be visible from at least 50 feet away. It is very important for your CA number to be displayed on both sides of your power unit (commercial vehicle).
It is also required to display any other regulation numbers that are applicable to your business such as a USDOT, MC or GVW number.
In the State of California, mandated by the California Highway Patrol you are required to display your business name, the city where your business is registered and your CA number (also any other regulation numbers you need). Displaying all of your information properly on both sides of your commercial vehicle shows that you are abiding CHP laws.
This also makes it easier for CHP officers, CHP Weight Station Workers and if you are in an accidently to properly locate the Motor Carrier. Meaning, it makes you and the authority’s life a lot easier.
