"Pull 'Em Over" is a 15 minute segment designed to stress the need to enforce federal traffic regulations by instructing law enforcement personnel on the proper steps to take in order to ensure highway and officer safety. Filmed in Essex, MD and Lafourche Parish, Louisiana, the video depicts scenarios showing where it is important for law enforcement officers to pull commercial motor vehicles over for traffic violations. WBAL-TV anchor Stan Stoval narrates the DVDs.

The 7-minute "CDL Enforcement: The Full Circle" traces the CDL enforcement from the citation, to adjudication, and to registration in CDLIS. This involves both law enforcement and the courts, and a "full circle" is completed when all parties do their part in ensuring federal laws are followed.
