The 72-hour Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) International Roadcheck begins today, June 4.
This year, International Roadcheck is focused on steering and suspension systems. The CVSA is highlighting these components and systems as a reminder of their importance to highway safety.
Most rigs can expect a Level I inspection—this includes an examination of both driver compliance and vehicle-related violations. Drivers will be required to provide their CDL, Medical Examiner’s Certificate, a Skill Performance Evaluation Certificate (if applicable), and more. If an inspector does identify violations, he or she can render the vehicle out of service if the condition meets the North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria.
International Roadcheck is the largest targeted program on commercial vehicles in the world—so large that around 17 trucks and buses are inspected, on average, every minute in Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
