Make sure you and your team are ready for inspection.
International Roadcheck is June 5-7 this year, so make sure you are tuned up and ready for an inspection. A heads up that a major focus this year will be on hours of service, so make sure that you are compliant on your hours and have the correct technology (ELD, AOBRD if applicable) for where you are traveling.
Not sure what this inspection entails?
If you are not sure what all can be inspected during Roadcheck the CVSA has provided a downloadable sheet for your convenience found here.
Take a page out of the Boy Scouts manual and be prepared as a huge number of inspections will occur. Last year the CVSA performed over 60,000 inspections! Some of the main vehicle violations found were: brakes, cargo securement, and tires. The main driver violations were: hours of service, wrong license class, false log books, and no seatbelt.
