Roadcheck 2012 inspection blitz runs until Thursday

| June 04, 2012

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance will hold Roadcheck, its annual vehicle inspection program, June 5-7.

During a 72-hour period, an estimated 10,000 CVSA-certified federal, state and local enforcement inspectors conduct truck and bus inspections at 1,500 North America locations.

CVSA is the largest targeted commercial vehicle roadside inspection program in the world, and drivers are being urged to have all documentation up to date, loads properly secured and logbooks complete.

    Yet they say we need more regulations, however we keep getting safer with the current regulations. Wake up America that should tell you something!!!!

    SAFER….a full 95% of drivers and companys are very safe, if you compare existing statistics, Cars should be the ones facing this inspection, they have accidents at a rate of 5 to 1, or more.
    What would be the reaction of the driving public if the Interstates were closed and they were forced to drive thru a checkpoint, outrage im sure, but were being forced to be inspected to make us safer….it will be a small percentage of drivers and trucks that fail this event, and that will be all over the evening news, you wont hear about the MILLIONS of law abiding, safe driving, honest hard working truckers.

    Yes Don!Many of us professionals would benefit from drug screens being required of ALL drivers, and roadside ones too! Why is it granny’s license is good for more years than mine or yours? The safe driving equasion has been too lopsided for many years, including Jason’s comment as very true.
