Get ready – approximately 10,000 inspectors from federal, state, and local agencies will be conducting a 72 hour blitz at 1500 inspection stations across the US.
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) annual Roadcheck will take place from June 3-5, 2014 this year.
Roadcheck is an annual roadside inspection event where roadside inspectors from across North America perform truck and bus inspections, hold safety events to educate the industry and the public on the importance of safe operations and the roadside inspection program, and give out educational materials.
As part of Roadcheck, roadside inspectors will be handing out materials developed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to help drivers and motor carriers Get Road Smart about the Agency’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program.

Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial vehicles in the world, with approximately 14 trucks or buses being inspected, on average, every minute from Canada to Mexico during a 72-hour period in early June.
Each year, approximately 10,000 CVSA-certified local, state, provincial and federal inspectors at 1,500 locations across North America perform the truck and bus inspections. CVSA sponsors Roadcheck with participation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada, and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Mexico).
Roadcheck is one of a series of activities that occur year round whereby CVSA-certified inspectors conduct compliance, enforcement and educational initiatives targeted at various elements of motor carrier, vehicle, driver and cargo safety and security.
