    • Share:

    The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Roadcheck 2019 nationwide roadside inspection blitz will take place June 4-6. Over the 72-hour period, commercial motor vehicle inspectors in jurisdictions throughout the country will conduct roadside inspections on commercial motor vehicles and drivers. Although roadside inspections will be thorough and cover many driver and vehicle compliance requirements, special emphasis this year will be on steering and suspension systems.

    During Roadcheck 2019, CVSA-certified inspectors will primarily conduct the North American Level I Inspection, a 37-step procedure that includes an examination of driver operating requirements and vehicle mechanical fitness. Inspectors may opt to conduct the Level II Walk Around Driver/Vehicle Inspection, Level III Driver/Credential/Administrative Inspection or the Level IV Vehicle-Only Inspection.

    If no critical vehicle inspection item violations are found during a Level I or Level V Inspection, a CVSA Decal will be applied to the rear impact guard, indicating that the vehicle successfully passed inspection. If a critical vehicle violation is found, the inspector may take the vehicle out of service. This means the vehicle cannot be operated until the violation(s) are corrected.

    A driver can also be placed out of service for driver credential-related issues or driver conditions, such as fatigue or impairment. Out-of-service orders and the number, type and severity of safety violations affect a motor carrier’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) score and its Safety Fitness Determination rating.
