Roadcheck inspection blitz still on … for now

inspection 15

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s International Roadcheck, scheduled for May 5-7, is still scheduled to go on.

Even if the annual safety initiative doesn’t get called off, states could opt out, though such moves are “very rare,” said Kerri Wirachowsky, CVSA’s director of the roadside inspection program.

This year’s Roadcheck will focus on driver compliance, notably electronic logging devices and hours of service, but also medical cards, CDLs, seat belt use and more. Inspectors will also be making standard checks of lights, brakes, and other equipment.
