International Roadcheck 2023: What You Need to Know
International Roadcheck is an annual event that takes place in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. This year's event is scheduled for May 16-18, and the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has announced that the focus will be on anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and cargo securement.
16 May 2023 - 18 May 2023
During International Roadcheck, CVSA-certified inspectors will conduct roadside safety inspections of commercial motor vehicles and drivers at weigh/inspection stations, designated inspection areas, and along roadways. Inspectors will ensure that the vehicle's brake systems, cargo securement, coupling devices, driveline/driveshaft components, driver's seat, fuel and exhaust systems, frames, lighting devices, steering mechanisms, suspensions, tires, wheels, rims, hubs, and windshield wipers are compliant with regulations.
Anti-lock braking systems play a critical role in reducing the risk of collisions by preventing the wheels from locking up or skidding, allowing a driver to maintain control of the vehicle while braking. Improper cargo securement poses a serious risk to drivers and other motorists by adversely affecting the vehicle's maneuverability, or worse, causing unsecured loads to fall, resulting in traffic hazards and vehicle collisions.
During International Roadcheck, inspectors will also check the driver's operating credentials, hours-of-service documentation, status in the drug and alcohol clearinghouse, seat belt usage, and for alcohol and/or drug impairment.
Vehicles that pass a Level I or Level V Inspection without any critical vehicle inspection item violations may receive a CVSA decal, which is valid for three months. If the inspector does identify critical vehicle inspection item violations, the vehicle will be restricted from operating until the identified out-of-service conditions have been corrected. Inspectors may also restrict the driver from operating if the driver is found to have driver out-of-service violations, such as not possessing a valid or necessary operating license or exhibiting signs of impairment.
International Roadcheck provides an opportunity to educate the motor carrier industry and the general public about the importance of safe commercial motor vehicle operations and the North American Standard Inspection Program. It is also a chance for CVSA's law enforcement member jurisdictions and federal agencies to work together to improve commercial motor vehicle and driver safety.
