During the Commercial Vehicle Alliance’s 2015 annual Roadcheck inspection event, out-of-service (OOS) rates for commercial vehicles and drivers dropped to record lows. As part of the safety blitz, enforcement officers conducted 69,472 total inspections, 44,989 of which were North American Standard Level 1 Inspections.
To raise driver awareness and increase road safety, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will kick off its annual Operation Safe Driver program Oct. 19, nationwide.
During the week, enforcement agencies across the nation will be on heightened alert aimed at both commercial vehicles and cars. Among the things drivers can expect are more-frequent roadside inspections, strict safety-belt enforcement, and much more. These will be implemented with the hope that they will make a lasting impression on drivers, and they will continue safe practices throughout the year.
