CVSA Roadcheck coming up in June

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s 19th annual International 72-hour Roadcheck is scheduled for Tuesday, June 6, through Thursday, June 8. The annual inspections are conducted throughout the U. S., Canada and Mexico.

The CVSA checks focus on the year-round commercial vehicle and driver roadside inspection program and draw the public’s attention to the continuous and combined efforts of law enforcement and the truck and bus industries to improve safety on North American highways.

Approximately 10,000 CVSA-certified truck and bus safety inspectors across North America were on the job inspecting commercial vehicles during the 2005 Roadcheck, with more than 60,000 inspections performed during the three-day blitz.

Participating agencies include the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the Transportation Security Administration, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada, the Research and Special Programs Administration, and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Mexico).

CVSA’s members include enforcement agencies from all 50 U.S. states and industry representatives throughout Canada, Mexico and the United States.
