The 2018 International Road Check is taking place June 5-7.

 

Did you know….

  • During this 72-hour inspection period, on average, 17 trucks and buses will be inspected per minute.
  • 32% of drivers who were fount to be non-compliant were removed from roadways due to violations?

Just think about the loss of revenue for employers or even the contracts that will be put in jeopardy if they are unable to fulfill deliveries, etc. 

  • Last year, during this nationwide event, over 62,000 inspections were conducted!

How confident are you that your drivers and vehicles will pass a roadside inspection?

According to The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), CMV inspectors will primarily perform North American Standard Level I inspections during the event – an examination of both driver operating requirements and vehicle mechanical fitness.

The emphasis this year is being placed on hours of service. However, violations and out-of-service orders will still be handed out for non-compliant brake systems, cargo securement, coupling devices, and more.

East Coast Risk Management encourages you to continue to take precautions as the likelihood of being stopped for a comprehensive driver and vehicle inspection continues to rise dramatically during International Road Check 2018.
