Department of Transportation

The seal of the U.S. Department of Transportation, the largest of all DOT's. Some states have based their DOT logo after this one, such as that of Iowa and North Carolina.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) is the most common name for a government agency in North America devoted to transportation. The largest is the United States Department of Transportation, which oversees interstate travel and is a federal agency. All U.S. states, Canadian provinces, and many local agencies also have similar organizations and provide enforcement through DOT officers within their respective jurisdictions.
