According to data released by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), on May 16-18 of this year, 59,429 commercial motor vehicles were inspected in Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. as part of CVSA’s 72-hour International Roadcheck inspection and enforcement initiative.
Eighty-one percent of the commercial motor vehicles and 94.5% of the commercial motor vehicle drivers inspected did not have any out-of-service violations and continued en route to safely complete their runs.
Commercial motor vehicles without any critical vehicle inspection violations are eligible to receive a CVSA decal.
During this year’s International Roadcheck, decals were applied to 14,032 power units, 5,814 trailers and 305 motorcoaches/buses, for a total of 20,151 decals throughout North America.
A focus on ABS
As we wrote in our preview post back in April, each year, CVSA highlights certain aspects of the roadside inspection.
This year, inspectors focused on anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and cargo securement. There were 2,975 cargo securement violations and 4,127 ABS violations – four were discovered on motorcoaches, 1,426 on power units and 2,697 on trailers.
