CVSA’s 2010 Roadcheck set for June 8-10
Jun 2, 2010 2:17 PM
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will help mobilize thousands of roadside inspectors who patrol North America’s highways June 8-10 for Roadcheck 2010. Approximately 14 trucks and buses will be inspected every minute during the intense three-day campaign, and typically 20% of vehicles will be placed out of service based on Roadchecks in previous years.
For 72 continuous hours inspectors and law enforcement officers will be conducting the annual Roadcheck, an event that involves federal, state, provincial, and local inspectors at more than 1,500 locations across the continent to conduct comprehensive North American Standard (NAS) Level I Inspections and other related roadside enforcement activities.
During the 2009 Roadcheck, 9,683 CVSA and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration certified inspectors at 2,145 locations across North America performed a record 72,255 truck and bus inspections. Of that total, there were 56,486 NAS Level I inspections, the most comprehensive roadside inspection.
Roadcheck 2009’s record total of overall inspections and Level I inspections showed significant declines in vehicle and driver OOS rates, as well as a significant drop in safety belt violations. Data show the highest overall vehicle compliance rate--80.4%--since 1996, and the highest overall driver compliance rate--95.7%--ever. For NAS Level I inspections, the compliance rates of 77.8% (vehicles) and 96.1% (drivers) were both records for Roadcheck, and represented 7.1% and 20.4% improvements respectively over 2008’s totals. In addition, safety belt violations were reduced in 2009 by 276 (1,246 to 970), a 22.2% improvement over 2008.
