Annual CVSA Road Check June 7-9

by User Not Found | May 27, 2016

052716_CVSARoadCheck_ImageThe Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's (CVSA) Annual International Roadcheck is June 7-9, 2016. It’s the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with an average of 17 trucks or buses inspected every minute across North America. 

What the inspectors are looking for

  • Brakes 
  • Coupling Devices 
  • Fuel & Exhaust Systems 
  • Frame, Van & Open-Top Trailers 
  • Lighting 
  • Securement of Cargo 
  • Steering 
  • Suspension 
  • Tires, Wheels, Rims & Hubs 

"The costs associated with being put out of service are insignificant when compared to the cost of crashes with innocent people," advises the CVSA. If you are put out of service, it will cost you an average of $861 – which does not include the cost of fines or repairs as a result of the inspection.  

Overall OOS violations have been decreasing over the past few years. Review the chart below. 

Capture

Since its inception in 1988, roadside inspections conducted during International Roadcheck have numbered more than 1.4 million. The International Roadcheck also provides an opportunity to educate the industry and the general public about the importance of safe commercial motor vehicle operations and the North American roadside inspection program. 

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) sponsors International 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).
