    2021 Roadcheck Will Focus On HOS And Lighting

    It may feel like we just had a Roadcheck, but it’s already time to mark your calendars for the next one. If you were one of the 1,128 truckers who were placed out of service for Hours Of Service (HOS) violations during Roadcheck 2020, don’t worry, you’ll get another shot.

    International Roadcheck is the largest commercial vehicle inspection event in North America. It runs for three days over the first weekend in May. This year, Roadcheck will run from May 4th-6th, 2021.
    During that time, commercial motor vehicle inspectors will inspect tens of thousands of vehicles and ensure drivers are complying with regulations. 2020’s Roadcheck conducted 50,151 inspections, with the vast majority conducted in the United States.

    By far the most common violation for truck drivers during 2020’s Roadcheck were Hours of Service violations. And according to the FMCSA, the most common out-of-service violation for vehicles during 2020 was “lamps inoperable.” That may be why during Roadcheck 2021, CMV inspectors will be placing an extra focus on Hours of Service compliance and lighting.

    According to the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) which is the driving force behind International Roadcheck, COVID-19 safety protocols will be observed during inspections. Additionally, trucks carrying COVID-19 vaccine shipments will not be stopped for inspection as part of the program “unless there is an obvious serious violation that is an imminent hazard.”

    For more information on the Roadcheck program, you can visit the CVSA website.
