    CVSA releases dates for 72-hour Roadcheck inspection spree

    The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has announced the dates for this year’s International Roadcheck inspection blitz.

    The CVSA announced that 2019 International Roadcheck will be taking place from June 4 — 6 throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Most drivers who are inspected will receive the full 37 point North American Standard Level I Inspection, according to a news release from the CVSA.

    The CVSA also announced this year’s violation emphasis category — steering components and suspension systems.

    “International Roadcheck is a high-visibility, three-day commercial motor vehicle and driver inspection and enforcement event,” said CVSA President Chief Jay Thompson. “However, aside from the increased inspections, we are not doing anything differently than any other day. The inspections performed during International Roadcheck are the same inspections that are conducted the day before International Roadcheck starts and the day after it concludes, as well as any other day of the year.”

    During last year’s International Roadcheck held on June 5 — 7, 2018, inspectors focused on Hours of Service regulation violations. In just 72 hours, 67,502 roadside inspections were conducted and 11,897 vehicles were placed out of service. An additional 2,664 drivers were placed out of service.

    The CVSA describes International Roadcheck as “the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with around 17 trucks and buses inspected, on average, every minute in Canada, the United States and Mexico during a 72-hour period.”
