Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance
About 10,000 federal, state, provincial and local truck and bus inspectors will fan out at more than 1,500 locations across North America Tuesday through Thursday for the annual “Roadcheck” inspections on commercial vehicles.
During the 72-hour event, inspectors will conduct comprehensive North American Standard Level I Inspections, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance said.
This year’s focus will be on vehicle brake systems and preventing driver fatigue by conducting hours-of-service compliance checks, said CVSA, which represents law enforcement personnel who conduct truck safety inspections in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
American Trucking Associations President Bill Graves said the trucking group wishes CVSA and its member enforcement officers well during the 72-hour enforcement effort.
