CVSA’s International Roadcheck Annual Three-Day Enforcement Event to Take Place June 2-4, 2015
Posted on May 27th, 2015
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) 28th annual International Roadcheck will take place June 2-4, 2015. International Roadcheck is a 72-hour period when approximately 10,000 CVSA-certified local, state, provincial and federal inspectors in jurisdictions across North America perform truck and bus inspections.
CVSA is holding an event to kick off the 28th annual International Roadcheck on June 2, 2015, near the Washington-Idaho state border at 10:00 am. The kickoff event includes speakers from CVSA, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), Idaho State Police, Washington State Patrol, Florida Highway Patrol and Washington Trucking Associations.
Each year, International Roadcheck places special emphasis on a category of violations. The special emphasis for International Roadcheck 2015 is cargo securement. While checking for compliance with safe loading regulations is always part of roadside inspections, CVSA is highlighting cargo safety as a reminder to drivers and carriers. The proper loading and securing of cargo on vehicles is a matter of public safety. For many types of loads, particularly those that are not sealed or otherwise inaccessible to the driver, regulations require the driver to stop within the first several miles of a trip and recheck the tie downs and other load securing equipment.
