The annual International Roadcheck inspection blitz, put on by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, is set for June 6-8, 2017 according, to CVSA’s website.
The CVSA blitz is undertaken by inspectors throughout North America. It is an annual 72-hour event when inspectors perform a very high number of inspections on commercial vehicles, to “conduct compliance, enforcement and educational initiatives.”
While the CVSA has yet to announce the event formally, or what the inspectors will be focusing on, the dates have been published on it’s website. Tire Safety, as well as traditional Level 1 inspections, were the focus of last year’s event.
During last year’s event, there was a total of 62,796 inspections conducted. Of the 62,796 inspections performed, 42,236 of them were Level 1 inspections. A total of 9,080 trucks and 1,436 drivers were placed out of service during the blitz. The highest number of out-of-service violations for trucks was due to brakes. While the highest number of out-of-service violations for drivers was due to hours-of-service violations.
