February 4, 2021

Be Roadcheck Ready

The next annual Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) International Roadcheck is scheduled for May 4-6, 2021. February is the perfect time to connect with us and let us help you get your fleet prepared for this upcoming inspection. Our fleet management experts will handle all the details that keep your vehicles compliant and their wheels in motion.

According to CVSA, the International Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with nearly 15 trucks or buses inspected, on average, every minute across North America during a 72-hour period.

Here are a few tips to help you prepare for a roadside inspection:

Understand Level-1 Inspections

This is the most thorough of all roadside inspections. Our ABS Tag & Title fleet management experts can help guide you through everything you need to know to remain complaint during this type of inspection.

Examine Your Cargo

Be sure to check out your safe load assessment, tail board, and end gate security, cargo shifting/falling safeguards, blocking and bracing for visible cargo, and tie-town anchor points.

Check Tires Closely

Tread depth and pressure will be measured. Be sure to check for any items lodged between dual tires and deep cuts or bulges in sidewalls.

Prepare Your Drivers

All drivers must be able to provide valid licenses, medical cards and current hours-of-service records upon inspection.

Inspect Your Vehicles

Check out your brakes, fuel, exhaust, coupling, frames and safety items such as windshield wipers and lights to ensure everything is in working order.
