The CVSA has set their annual International Roadcheck for June 4-6. Jurisdictions throughout North America will conduct on motor carrier vehicles and drivers. This year’s focus will be on steering and suspension.
“Steering and suspension are safety critical systems for any commercial motor vehicle,” said CVSA President Chief Jay Thompson with the Arkansas Highway Police. “Not only do they support the heavy loads carried by trucks and buses, but they also help maintain stability and control under acceleration and braking, keeping the vehicle safely on the road. Furthermore, they keep tires in alignment, reducing chances of uneven tire wear and possible tire failure, and they maximize the contact between the tires and the road to provide steering stability and good handling.” https://cvsa.org/news-entry/2019-roadcheck-dates-focus/
Inspectors will conduct Level I inspections on vehicles and can opt to conduct the Level II Walk-Around Driver/Vehicle Inspection, Level III Driver/Credential/Administrative Inspection or Level V Vehicle-Only Inspection.
As usual, Len Dubois Trucking expects to have zero violations. Proper pre and post trip inspections are required to be done daily. Drivers should report any issues and work with Devon in Maintenance to have issues taken care of – Safety is a team effort.
