CVSA RoadCheck 2017

CVSA's 30th annual International Roadcheck will take place June 6-8, 2017.

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's (CVSA) 30th annual International Roadcheck will take place on June 6-8.

Over the 72-hour period, CVSA-certified commercial motor vehicle inspectors in the US, Mexico and Canada will conduct about 17 truck or bus inspections per minute.

Each year, law enforcement focuses on a different category of violations.

This year’s focus is Cargo Securement!

Most inspections conducted during this time will be full "Level 1 Inspections".

These are intensive 37-step inspections of both the driver and the vehicle and each last about 1 hour.

Here are areas that the CVSA will be focusing on:

Make sure you are carrying a safe load.

Check tail board security.

Verify end gates are secured in stake pockets.

Check both sides of the trailer to ensure cargo is protected from shifting or falling.

Verify that rear doors are securely closed.

It may be necessary to examine inside of trailer to assure that large objects are properly secured.

Check cargo securement devices for proper number, size and condition.

Check tie down anchor points for deformation and cracking.

Where load is visible, check for proper blocking and bracing.
