The CVSA’s 2024 International Roadcheck

2024 International Roadcheck

The CVSA has scheduled their nationwide International Roadcheck from May 14 to May 16, 2024.

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) conducts the International Roadcheck, an annual three-day initiative. According to the CVSA official website, the alliance is “a nonprofit association consisting of local, state, provincial, territorial, and federal commercial motor vehicle safety officials and industry representatives.”

CVSA inspectors across North America advocate compliance, enforcement and educational initiatives. These initiatives actively target improving various elements of motor carrier, vehicle, and driver safety. Additionally, they include a special emphasis placed on a category of violations. This year’s focus is on tractor protection, anti-bleed back systems, as well as alcohol and controlled substance possession.

CVSA-certified law enforcement personnel examine commercial motor vehicles at temporary sites. These include weight/inspections stations and mobile patrols to check and verify compliance with federal, state, provincial or territorial regulations among the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

There are typically two types of inspections conducted. North American Standard Level I Inspection, the most comprehensive, and North American Standard Level II, III, and V Inspections. Inspections focus on several aspects including mechanical fitness, driver qualifications, hours of service compliance, cargo securement, and more.

A vehicle that successfully passes a Level I or V Inspection without any violations may receive a CVSA decal, which is valid for three months.

If enforcement officials find any violations, they may issue citations or require the vehicle to be placed out of service until the violations are corrected. Additionally, other steps may be necessary to address the violations and ensure road safety.

The International Roadcheck serves as a reminder to commercial vehicle operators to ensure that drivers and their vehicles are in compliance with safety regulations to help reduce the risk of accidents and promote safe transportation.
