Departments of Transportation (DOTs)

Among government, and NGOs there exists many responsibilities for which Versalift and its fleet of bucket trucks, digger derricks, and cable placers provides.

For example, Federal, State, and local municipal governments must design, build, and maintain safe, efficient and economically feasible roads throughout the country.  Some further discussion is below.

Versalift Supports Departments of Transportation in Keeping American Roads Safe

Bucket trucks have a number of applications and uses in the service of federal, state, county and community DOTs. One significant use for bucket trucks by Departments of Transportation is to maintain street and highway lighting. Because lighting has an immediate impact on the safety of drivers and pedestrians, it is vital that it be maintained well. If a street isn’t well-lit, it is certainly still safe to drive, but perhaps not as safe to cross. Most American Departments of Transportation normally include public safety as part of the core of their mission statements. Making streets and highways safe for drivers and pedestrians, by ensuring that they are well lit, is an essential part of the important work of employees at transportation departments, at every level, around the United States.
  • Bucket trucks, capable of safely putting technicians into the air, are maintained by DOTs around the United States.
  • Companies and municipalities alike purchase bucket trucks in order to manage a set of high-reach tasks and responsibilities. Many DOTs work with private contractors to manage these responsibilities, if the state or county departments do not have bucket trucks in their fleets

Departments of Transportation have a broad set of responsibilities, including maintaining roadways to be fast, safe and efficient.

Bucket trucks make it easier for Departments of Transportation to perform the many varied tasks that support their mission statements. The United States Department of Transportation has been operating for fifty years, with a mission of serving the United States by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible and convenient transportation system that meets our vital national interests and enhances the quality of life of the American people, today and into the future. While the mission of the Federal Department of Transportation is very broad, state-level DOTs reflect the same ideas, focusing mostly upon the safety and accessibility of transportation systems.

  • Bucket trucks that are in the employ of state departments of transportation must create value. This is because state DOTs have a tight budget, and are funded most significantly by fuel surcharges and taxes.
  • Improving fuel efficiency in vehicles results in less fuel sales, which has the impact of decreasing DOT budgets.
  • With budgets that are in danger of decreasing, state DOTs must purchase the most efficient and effective utility vehicles that can help them achieve their goals.

Bucket Trucks provide a safe and efficient way for State and Local Transportation Departments to deliver upon their missions

Many State Departments of Transportation have a mission to provide a safe transportation system that ensures the mobility of people and goods, enhances economic prosperity, and preserves the quality of the environment and communities. Additionally, many state DOTs have a goal of being completely free of both congestion and fatalities. Certainly, consistently maintaining street and highway lighting is a big step in the right direction. In larger urban areas, like Chicago, Boston or Dallas, bucket trucks are shared, and therefore used in a set of different bureaus within the department.

Inspections support the mission of a DOT and create safer working conditions

In addition to be being very useful tools for DOTs, bucket trucks, and most other commercial vehicles that weigh more than 5 tons, must be inspected each year by a State DOT official, or by a certified inspection service. With regular preventative maintenance and careful daily inspection, Versalift bucket trucks can create value for Departments of Transportation for decades.Because they are so safe and efficient when they are used correctly, bucket trucks are necessary tools to support American Departments of Transportation at any level. With safety at the heart of the mission of any transportation department, bucket trucks will continue to be used to efficiently maintain safe roadways across the United States.
