CVSA says roughly 10,000 inspectors from state, local and federal enforcement agencies will during the 72-hour period be stationed at 1,500 inspection points across the U.S. to do roadside inspections of trucks and buses.
Of the 20,067 commercial vehicles inspected in the September-held Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's Brake Safety Week, 2,714 were placed out of service to produce a 13.5 percent out-of-service rate.
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s annual enforcement blitz, Operation Safe Driver, will mobilize across North America Oct. 20-26.
A one-day inspection spree put the skids on dozens of operations, finding violations focused on hours of service and maintenance.
Nearly 100 of those drivers were sidelined for log violations during the two-day blitz on I-10 in Eastern Arizona.
Of the 21,255 trucks inspected in mid-September as part of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's Brake Safety Week, 15.3 percent were placed out of service.
