Roadcheck set for June 7-9

| April 20, 2011

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance will hold Roadcheck, its annual vehicle inspection program, June 7-9.

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

Last year, vehicle compliance rates were about 80 percent, while drivers had a 95.6 percent pass rate.

    If the state and federal agencies really and truly wanted to make trucks safer they would install inspection pits along the highways for truckers to use for inspecting their trucks and adjusting brakes. The truth is the inspecting agencies only want the revenue. These inspection stations (for truckers use) can be pits with covered roofs like pole barns. Simple and very effective. Many truckers conduct thorough inspections prior to leaving on a haul and when in the terminals, other than that its almost impossible to conduct a good insp on the road.
