CVSA sets dates for rescheduled Roadcheck
Posted August 12, 2020
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) rescheduled its International Roadcheck for September 9-11.
The annual event was postponed in March until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was originally slated for early May.
The three-day enforcement campaign will result in a high volume of roadside inspections throughout North America. Law enforcement will perform driver and commercial motor vehicle inspections at weigh or inspection sites and fixed locations and through roving mobile patrols. Officers will check for compliance with motor carrier safety regulations, and those vehicles or drivers found with a critical inspection violation will be placed out of service.
Each year, CVSA’s event emphasizes a specific area of safety compliance. This year’ focus is on the driver requirements component of a roadside inspection. Areas include:
- Driver’s age
- Driver’s licensing requirements
- Driver physical qualifications
- Sickness or fatigue
- Alcohol, drugs, and other substances
- Driver’s record of duty status (U.S., Canada, or Mexico)
