Roadcheck 2022 is May 17-19
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Administration (CVSA) will hold Roadcheck 2021 on May 19-19, 2022. This year, Roadcheck will focus on wheel ends which include the wheels, rims, hubs, and tires on a commercial motor vehicle.
CVSA’s International Roadcheck is the largest commercial motor vehicle enforcement program in the world. Every year, the CVSA conducts a large-scale, North American Wide Commercial Vehicle Safety Blitz focusing on driver safety, compliance, and education.
International Roadcheck is a high-volume, high-visibility three-day enforcement initiative that highlights the importance of commercial motor vehicle safety through roadside inspections. Over that 72-hour period, commercial motor vehicle inspectors in jurisdictions throughout North America will conduct inspections on commercial motor vehicles and drivers.
The International Roadcheck places special emphasis on a category of violations each year. This year’s focus is on wheel ends. Wheel end components support the heavy loads carried by commercial motor vehicles, maintain stability and control, and are critical for braking. Violations involving wheel-end components historically account for about one-quarter of the vehicle out-of-service violations discovered during International Roadcheck, and past International Roadcheck data routinely identified wheel-end components as a top 10 vehicle violation.
Inspectors will ensure the vehicle’s brake systems, cargo securement, coupling devices, driveline/driveshaft components, driver’s seat, exhaust systems, frames, fuel systems, lighting devices, steering mechanisms, suspensions, tires, van and open-top trailer bodies, wheels, rims, hubs, and windshield wipers are compliant with regulations. Inspections of motorcoaches, passenger vans, and other passenger-carrying vehicles also include emergency exits, electrical cables, and systems in the engine and battery compartments, and seating.
Also during an inspection, inspectors will check the driver’s operating credentials, hours-of-service documentation, seat belt usage, and for alcohol and/or drug impairment. A driver will be placed out of service if an inspector discovers driver-related out-of-service conditions.
