Roadcheck June 4-6, 2013
Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial vehicles in the world, with approximately 14 trucks or buses being inspected, on average, every minute from Canada to Mexico during a 72-hour period in early June. Each year, approximately 10,000 CVSA-certified local, state, provincial and federal inspectors at 1,500 locations across North America perform the truck and bus inspections. CVSA sponsors Roadcheck with participation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada, and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Mexico). Roadcheck is one of a series of activities that occur year round whereby CVSA-certified inspectors conduct compliance, enforcement and educational initiatives targeted at various elements of motor carrier, vehicle, driver and cargo safety and security.
Since its inception in 1988, the roadside inspections conducted during Roadcheck have numbered over 1 Million, resulting in more than 220 lives saved and 4,045 injuries avoided. It has also provided for the distribution of countless pieces of educational literature and safety events to educate industry and the general public about the importance of safe commercial vehicle operations and the roadside inspection program.
This comprehensive site is designed to specifically help both CARRIERS and DRIVERS learn and understand the FMCSA’s CSA program offering a wide variety of information and resources. CSA is now fully operational and activities like random road side inspections, warning letters, and interventions are fully being enforced.
The main purpose and mission of CSA is to become more effective and efficient together with industry and state partners to achieve its mission of reducing commercial motor vehicle (CMV) crashes, fatalities, and injuries.
Key Features of CSA are to:
Increase the opportunity to have contact with more carriers and drivers.
Enhanced data collection to improve performance measurements that identify high risk carrier and driver behaviors.
Apply a wide range of interventions to correct high risk behaviors before they become chronic, habitual, and even deadly.
