June Roadcheck to focus on steering, suspensions
Posted March 27, 2019
Steering and suspensions are the focus of the annual Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) International Roadcheck, set for June 4-6 throughout North America.
Each year, the Roadcheck places emphasis on a category of violations. During the 72-hour period, CVSA-certified inspectors will primarily conduct a North American Standard Level I Inspection. The inspection is a 37-step procedure that includes an exam of driver operating requirements and vehicle fitness. Inspectors may instead perform a Level II walk-around driver/vehicle inspection, Level III driver/credential/administrative inspection, or the Level V vehicle-only inspection.
The International Roadcheck is believed to be the largest targeted enforcement program on CMVs in the world. CVSA said that about 17 trucks and buses are inspected on average, every minute in the United States, Canada, and Mexico during the 72-hour period. More than 1.6 million roadside inspections have been conducted during the annual event since its inception in 1988.
International Roadcheck is a CVSA program with participation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada, and the Ministry of Communications and Transportation of Mexico.
