This Month's Hot Topic
International Roadcheck is an annual three-day event when inspectors certified by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) conduct targeted inspections. Each year, the CVSA captures and reports data on specific areas of motor carrier compliance. This year's event will focus on two of the most common areas of violation: hours-of-service (HOS) compliance and lighting
Roadcheck 2021 is scheduled May 4-6. Inspectors will use the North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria to help identify vehicle and driver-related out-of-service conditions. Vehicles that are placed out of service cannot be operated until the identified out-of-service conditions have been corrected.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, enforcement will conduct inspections following regional health and safety protocols during this year’s event.
Another priority during the enforcement campaign is to make sure COVID-19 vaccine shipments continue to their destination, quickly and safely. Vaccine shipments will not be held up for inspections unless there is an obvious serious violation that is an imminent hazard.
