2024 CVSA Roadcheck Inspections Start Now

Are your vehicles and drivers ready for this year's CVSA roadside inspections?

Starting today, May 14, 2024, through Thursday, inspectors across North America will be pulling over trucks for random roadside inspections as part of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s annual Roadcheck campaign.

The focus areas of this year’s event are tractor protection systems and alcohol and controlled substance possession.  

The Mission of CVSA International Roadcheck 2024

This year’s International Roadcheck serves as a reminder to companies with employees who drive to establish and strictly enforce anti-controlled substance and alcohol policies to prevent their use or possession in the workplace. 

In addition, by focusing on tractor protection systems, International Roadcheck 2024 aims to promote awareness of critically important vehicle components, such as the tractor protection valve, trailer supply valve, and anti-bleed-back valve, which is often overlooked during pre-trip inspections.

What Will Roadcheck Inspections Involve?

In most cases, inspectors will conduct a 37-point, Level One – North American Standard Inspection, which will look for both driver and vehicle safety requirements.

This will include an inspection of the driver’s CDL, medical card, record of duty status (if required), seat belt usage, and vehicle inspection reports. It will also include a comprehensive look at components such as the vehicle’s brake systems, cargo securement, fuel systems, frames, exhaust systems, steering mechanisms, suspensions, tires, and windshield wipers. 

Common Reasons for Roadside Inspection Failures

Last year there were 59,429 roadside inspections conducted as part of the CVSA International Roadcheck event, with 11,270 vehicles and 3,256 drivers put out of service.

The top reasons these drivers and vehicles were put out of service were problems with a vehicle’s brake systems, tires and wheels, and cargo securement. For drivers, the top issues involved hours of service, having a canceled or revoked license, and false record of duty status.
