USDOT Number

Navigating the regulations for commercial vehicles in New York, especially those regarding DOT (Department of Transportation) compliance, can be complex. At Manhattan Sign Shop, we specialize in DOT lettering and decals that are crucial for meeting legal standards and ensuring that your commercial vehicles operate within the law. Here, we provide a detailed guide on DOT decal requirements in New York.

A DOT number is a unique identifier assigned by the Department of Transportation to track the safety information of vehicles and their owners. Any commercial vehicle operating interstate or carrying hazardous materials must display a USDOT number. In New York, even certain intrastate commercial vehicles require DOT numbers, depending on their use and weight.

Understanding DOT Numbers and Their Importance

At Manhattan Sign Shop, we ensure that our DOT decals meet all legal specifications for visibility, size, and placement. Here are the key requirements you need to know:

Size and Visibility: DOT numbers must be prominently displayed on both sides of the vehicle. They should be at least two inches high, with letters that contrast sharply against the background color of the vehicle, ensuring they are visible from 50 feet away during daylight hours.

Placement: DOT numbers should be placed on a flat surface on the vehicle body or on a decal that doesn’t obstruct the numbers’ visibility.

Durability: The materials used for DOT lettering must be durable and able to withstand the elements without fading or peeling. At Manhattan Sign Shop, we use high-quality vinyl for our DOT decals, which is resistant to weather and the wear and tear of road use.
