CVSA Roadcheck 2016 – Helpful Hints from CVSA

CVSA Roadcheck – Are you Ready?

The 2016 CVSA Roadcheck is only three weeks away and we have complied some helpful tips and a checklist we found on the CVSA website to help get you ready.

International Roadcheck List for Drivers

Tips for Avoiding Tire Violations

Top-Tire Related Violations

International Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with nearly 17 trucks or buses inspected, on average, every minute in Canada, the United States and Mexico during a 72-hour period. During the annual three-day event, CVSA-certified inspectors conduct compliance, enforcement and educational initiatives targeted at various elements of motor carrier, vehicle and driver safety.

Each year, International Roadcheck places special emphasis on a category of violations. The special emphasis for 2016 International Roadcheck is tire safety (i.e., measuring the tire tread depth, checking the tire pressure, checking to make sure no items are lodged between dual tires, and examining the overall condition of the tire to ensure no deep cuts or bulges exist in the sidewalls of the tire). While checking a vehicle’s tires is always part of roadside inspections, CVSA is highlighting tire safety as a reminder to drivers and carriers.

Bentley Truck Services can help to keep your truck up to standards and ready for the upcoming roadcheck. Contact one of our Service Department nearest you.

Visit the CVSA website for more details.

“This truck represents our vision of the future of the medium-duty truck industry,” said Shaun Skinner, executive vice president and general manager of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. “As the adult population grows and as people move to urban centers, there will be an increasing need for delivery trucks that can carry a lot of cargo but at the same time be fuel efficient, maneuverable, environmentally friendly, and that offer a low cost of ownership. The all-new FTR achieves all of these goals.”

Are You Ready? CVSA Roadcheck 2016 Coming Soon

CVSA International Roadcheck 2016 will take place June 7-9, 2016
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) 29th Annual International Roadcheck will take place on June 7-9, 2016. Approximately 10,000 CVSA-certified local, state, provincial, territorial and federal inspectors in jurisdictions across North America will perform large truck and bus safety inspections.

Each year, International Roadcheck places particular emphasis on a category of violations. This year will be the year of tire safety, which will include the following:

Measuring tire tread depth
Checking the tire pressure
Checking to make sure no items are lodged between dual tires
Examining the overall condition of the tire to ensure no deep cuts or bulges exist in the sidewalls

CVSA Tips for Avoiding Tire Violations

Of course, checking vehicle tires is always a part of roadside inspections; the CVSA continues to highlight the important test as a reminder to drivers and carriers. This tire inspection is in addition to the 37-step North American Standard Level I Inspection, one of the most rigorous roadside inspection procedures that examines not only the vehicle but also the driver.

International Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world. Nearly 75,000 inspections take place each year during the inspection spree. On average, it inspects 17 trucks or buses every minute in Canada, the United States, and Mexico during its 72-hour window. During the annual three-day event, CVSA-certified inspectors conduct compliance, enforcement and educational initiatives targeted at various elements of motor carrier, vehicle and driver safety.

In last year’s Roadcheck, 1,623 drivers and 9,732 vehicles were found with out-of-service violations, the lowest rate since 1991.

Call or stop by our Service Department at the location nearest you for more information on the CVSA Roadcheck.
