Reminder of the week:

CVSA’s annual Roadcheck Inspections will focus on tire safety


The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) announced its annual International Roadcheck will take place June 7-9, 2016.

The emphasis this year is tire safety (i.e., measuring the tire tread depth, checking the tire pressure, checking to make sure no items are lodged between dual tires, and examining the overall condition of the tire to ensure no deep cuts or bulges exist in the sidewalls of the tire).

During the Roadcheck, inspectors will mainly conduct the North American Standard Level I Inspection — a 37-step procedure that includes an examination of both the driver and vehicle.


Drivers may be asked to provide the following: 

License,

Endorsements,

Medical card, and

Hours of service documentation.

Drivers will also be checked for seat belt usage and the use of alcohol and/or drugs.


The vehicle inspection may include a check of:

The braking system,

Securement of cargo,

Coupling devices,

Exhaust system,

Frame,

Fuel system,

Lights,

Steering mechanism,

Driveline/driveshaft,

Suspension,

Tires,

Van and open-top trailer bodies,

Wheels and rims,

Windshield wipers, and

Emergency exits on buses.

Thank You! BE SAFE OUT THERE!
