CVSA’s International Roadcheck: May 14-16, 2024

CVSA’s annual three-day International Roadcheck is scheduled for May 14-16, 2024. 

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) International Roadcheck, the largest enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, will take place May 14-16, 2024. During this time, CVSA-certified officials will conduct inspections at weigh/inspection stations, designated inspection areas and along roadways throughout Canada, Mexico and the U.S. 

Each year, CVSA focuses on a specific aspect of roadside inspection; this year’s inspection will have two focuses – tractor protection systems and alcohol and controlled substance possession. CVSA reports that “controlled substance and alcohol possession/use remains a significant concern for motor carriers, drivers and the general public. The number of prohibited drivers listed in the U.S. Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse (DACH) has been increasing. This alarming trend poses a threat to all motorists who travel on roadways throughout North America”. 

“This year’s International Roadcheck will serve as a reminder to motor carriers to establish and strictly enforce clear policies to prevent controlled substance and alcohol possession or use in the workplace. In addition, U.S. motor carriers should regularly query the DACH to ensure their drivers are not in prohibited status. Commercial motor vehicle drivers are reminded to adhere to their company’s policies and to not possess, use or be under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances while on duty. Inspectors are reminded to be vigilant in the detection and interdiction of such driver violations during every inspection.”

In addition, CVSA’s focus on tractor protection systems aims to drive awareness of these critically important vehicle components, with a focus on tractor protection valve, trailer supply valve and anti-bleed back valve. To take proactive measures, CVSA has provided an inspection bulletin, clarifying the steps needed to properly check tractor protection systems. 

During the three-day inspection, inspectors will check the motor vehicles along with the driver’s documentation and credentials using CVSA’s North American Standard Inspection  (NASI) program procedures. Any vehicle or driver in violation of the NASI will be placed out-of-service until those violations or conditions are addressed. 

Both drivers and vehicles that pass the North American Standard Level I or Level V inspection without any violations may receive a CVSA decal which is valid for three months. CVSA decals, when affixed, remain valid for a period not to exceed three consecutive months. Generally, vehicles displaying a valid CVSA decal will not be subject to re-inspection. However, nothing prevents re-inspection of a vehicle or combination of vehicles bearing valid CVSA decals.
