On May 16-18, 59,429 commercial motor vehicles were inspected in Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. as part of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) 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, according to CVSA's news release.
Commercial motor vehicles without any critical vehicle inspection violations are eligible to receive a CVSA decal.
International Roadcheck Results
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.
Conversely, CVSA-certified inspectors discovered at least one out-of-service violation on 19% of the vehicles inspected and, in turn, removed those 11,270 commercial motor vehicles from roadways until the out-of-service (OOS) violations were corrected. There were 17,479 vehicle out-of-service violations in total.
Inspectors also restricted 5.5% (3,256) of the commercial motor vehicle drivers inspected who were found to have at least one out-of-service driver violation, as identified in the CVSA North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria, from operating their vehicle.
Those drivers were restricted from commercial travel until their out-of-service violations were addressed. There were 5,280 driver out-of-service violations in total.
A total of 116,669 violations were identified throughout the effort, which included all driver and vehicle out-of-service violations and violations that were not out-of-service, combined.
ABS violations were discovered on 1,264 power units, 2,428 trailers, and four buses.
