International Roadcheck (June 7-9)

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) 29th annual International Roadcheck (I-R) will take place June 7-9, 2016. I-R is a 72-hour period when approximately 10,000 CVSA-certified local, state, provincial, territorial and federal inspectors in jurisdictions across North America perform large truck and bus safety inspections. During I-R, inspectors primarily conduct North American Standard Level 1 Inspections which include an examination of both the driver and vehicle.

Drivers are required to provide items such as their license, endorsements, medical card and hours-of-service documentation, and may be checked for seat belt usage and the use of alcohol and/or drugs. The vehicle inspection includes checking items such as the braking system, securement of cargo, coupling devices, exhaust system, frame, fuel system, lights, steering mechanism, driveline/driveshaft, suspension, tires, van and open-top trailer bodies, wheels and rims, and windshield wipers.
