1972 DMV Seal

In September 1972, the foundation was laid for what is now DMV’s Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Section with the creation of two Highway Use Inspector positions. The positions were filled by Paul Sambel and Charles Pierce to conduct focused enforcement of the permits for highway use, weight limits, and over dimension. In 1973, twenty sedans from the Department of Motor Vehicles once again began highway patrols while assisting the motoring public and enforcing highway laws. The vehicles were identified on their doors by twelve-inch circular decals of the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles seal.
