Roadcheck begins Tuesday

Roadcheck will cover North America.

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has scheduled its annual Roadcheck event for June 8-10.

CVSA scheduled the event to eliminate scheduling problems during the weekend following Memorial Day, May 31.

Roadcheck is a 72-hour event in which an estimated 10,000 inspectors set up more than 1,000 checkpoints on highways across North America to monitor truck safety compliance.

Last year, the vehicle compliance rate of 80.4 percent was the highest since 1996, CVSA said. The driver compliance rate of 95.7 percent was the highest ever.
