Last week, the CVSA announced that the next Roadcheck inspection blitz will happen June 3rd to 5th, 2014. Over 10,000 certified inspectors will be inspecting trucks and buses in over 1,500 locations across Mexico, Canada, and the United States.
Last year, about 72,000 drivers and vehicles were inspected. About 4% of those drivers were placed out-of-service, mostly due to hours of service violations. Amazingly, about a quarter of the vehicles inspected were placed out-of-service, mostly due to brake-related issues.
So, mark your calendar and be extra careful! Take a look at the CVSA’s Roadcheck Checklist for some tips on passing inspection. You can also check out our free electronic logbook app to keep your driver logs clean and ensure you don’t end up out of hours.
