    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Typically motor carrier unit is a commercial vehicle inspection unit. They check trucks for any defects as well as the necessary equipment and paperwork as required by law.

If it was a white van it's probably the Port of entry which falls under the Department of Revenue. They set up portable scales and do some Level 1 insepctions (brakes, lights etc...)...The Motor Carrier talkgroup is a tac channel for the CSP MCSAP troopers, it's rarely used. I also think Aurora and Denver have dedicated truck inspectors too...so it could have been them.
