Every year at the beginning of June, tens of thousands of commercial vehicles are inspected during the CVSAs Roadcheck event. International Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with around 15 trucks or buses inspected, on average, every minute across North America during a 72-hour period. Here’s a rundown of the numbers of this year’s event that took place June 7th to 9th.

  • 62,796 truck and bus inspections were completed.
  • 42,236 North American Standard Level I inspections were completed, where drivers and vehicles are assessed for violations of federal, state, or provincial safety regulations. Of these Level I inspections, 21.5% of vehicles were found with out-of-service violations. The percentage of drivers under Level 1 Inspections who were placed out of service was 3.4, down 0.2% from last year.
  • Overall Vehicle inspection results:
    • The focus during this year’s event was tire safety. Tire/wheel violations accounted for 18.5% of the total percentage of out-of-service violations.
    • Brake violations related to adjustments and systems were the most common violations resulting in a vehicle being placed out-of-service. They accounted for 45.7% of all out-of-service violations issued (2.7% more than last year’s numbers)
    • 78.5% of all vehicles inspected had no out-of- service violations.
  • Overall Driver Inspection Results:
    • Hours-of-Service and false log violations were the most common violations resulting in a driver being placed out-of-service. Hours-of-Service violations accounted for 46.8% of all driver violations (0.8% more than last year’s numbers). False log violations accounted for 16.4% of all driver violations.
    • 96.6% of all drivers had no out-of-service violations.
