Port of Entry
The Colorado State Patrol Port of Entry strives to ensure safe travel on our roadways through enforcement of state and federal size, weight, and safety regulations.
The Port of Entry exists to encourage and promote the safe operation of commercial motor vehicles in a manner that safeguards the motoring public while protecting the state’s infrastructure through uniform practices and enforcement procedures.

The unit assists in establishing and maintaining effective commercial vehicle operating standards, enforcement practices, strategies, and penalties that provide the basis for uniformity in the enforcement community and compatibility with industry partners. The unit enforces laws, rules, and regulations concerning commercial vehicle operation while collecting fees and taxes and providing effective customer service.
