The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has postponed its 2020 International Roadcheck due to the growing coronavirus pandemic. It rescheduled the 72-hour event now for Sept. 9-11. The main focus of this the driver requirements component of a roadside inspection.
CVSA conducted Operation Safe Driver Week worked on focusing on dangerous behaviors such as speeding, failure to use a seatbelt, distracted driving, following too closely, drunk or drugged driving, reckless driving, and more. CVSA mainly continues its focus on the driver with this year’s event.
Every year, the International Roadcheck concentrates on the category of violations. But this year’s focus is mainly on the driver requirements component of a roadside inspection. Recently, there are approximately 3.36 million inspections during 2019, 952,938 driver violations were discovered, of which 199,722 were out-of-service conditions.
While verifying drivers, the inspector will gather and verify the driver’s documents, examine the driver’s license. Also, they can identify the motor carrier, check the record of duty status, and review periodic inspection reports. The seat belt usage, fatigue, illness, and apparent alcohol or drug possession or impairment also included while inspecting.
There will be a serious action takes against when a driver operating his vehicle without the proper driver credentials, operating while ill, in possession of or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, fatigued or in violation of hours-of-service rules or showing other signs of impairment, may be placed out of service.
Coming to the vehicle’s part, it includes checking critical vehicle inspection items such as cargo securement, brake systems, coupling devices, driver’s seat (missing), drive-line/drive-shaft components, exhaust systems, fuel systems, frames, lighting devices, suspensions, steering mechanisms, tires, van and open-top trailer bodies, rims and hubs, wheels, and windshield wipers.
If the inspector finds your vehicle violations, then he places the vehicle out of service. Also, those vehicles will be restricted from traveling until the violations are corrected. So, 2020 Roadcheck reschedules for September 2020 will begin quickly.
“Although the coronavirus pandemic understandably shifted priorities and personnel during the spring, the commercial motor vehicle law enforcement community has reasserted its focus on the roadside inspection program and enforcement duties,” CVSA President Sgt. John Samis with the Delaware State Police said in a statement.
“Jurisdictions are nearly back to their pre-pandemic capacity with a strengthened concentration on identifying and removing unfit vehicles and drivers from our roadways using federal safety standards and the out-of-service criteria.”
During International Roadcheck, inspectors primarily conduct the North American Standard Level I Inspection, which is a 37-step procedure that includes two main inspection categories. And also an examination of driver operating requirements and vehicle mechanical fitness. A third category, hazardous materials/dangerous goods, may also be part of a Level I Inspection.
