Motor Carriers Should be Aware that Roadcheck is Approaching Fast

CVSA Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program for commercial vehicles in the world. Approximately 14 trucks or buses are inspected every minute during a 72-hour period in early June by nearly 10,000 CVSA-certified local, state, provincial and federal inspectors at 1,500 locations across North America. Roadcheck is one of a series of activities that occur year round whereby CVSA-certified inspectors conduct compliance, enforcement and educational initiatives that target various elements of motor carrier, vehicle, driver, and cargo safety and security.>

CVSA sponsors Roadcheck with participation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada, and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Mexico).

Since its inception in 1988, inspectors have conducted more than one million roadside inspections during Roadcheck, resulting in more than 220 lives saved and 4,045 injuries avoided. The event has also allowed inspectors to distribute countless pieces of educational literature and publicize safety events in order to educate industry and the general public about the importance of safe commercial vehicle operations and the roadside inspection program.
