The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has scheduled this year’s 72-hour Roadcheck for June 2-4 across the country. CVSA sponsors Roadcheck each year with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Mexico).

Last year, from June 3-5, 9,148 CVSA- and FMCSA-certified inspectors at 1,683 locations across North America performed 67,931 truck and bus inspections; 52,345 of the total were North American Standard Level I inspections, the most comprehensive roadside inspection.

Both the total number of inspections and Level I inspections were records for the annual Roadcheck event, CVSA says; 2008 also saw significant positive gains in out-of-service rates for most vehicle and driver types.
