CVSA International Roadcheck Begins June 5
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will be conducting its annual International Roadcheck from June 5 to June 7.
Commercial motor vehicle inspectors across North America will inspect commercial motor vehicles and drivers, and this year, they will be putting heavy emphasis on hours-of-service compliance.
Inspectors will primarily be conducting the North American Standard Level I Inspection. Some of the things inspectors will be checking include the vehicle’s fuel systems, tires, steering mechanisms, brake systems and cargo securement.
A CVSA decal will be given to vehicles that successfully pass a decal-eligible inspection by a CVSA-certified inspector. If violations are found, the driver or vehicle is at risk of being out of service until corrected. According to the CVSA, 4.2 percent of drivers and 23 percent of vehicles that received Level I Inspections were placed out of service last year.
Visit the CVSA’s website for more information about the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance and International Roadcheck.
