Roadcheck is a 72-hour high-visibility, high-volume commercial motor vehicle inspection and enforcement initiative organized by the Commercial Safety Vehicle Alliance in partnership with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Commercial motor vehicle inspectors will conduct North American Standard Inspections of commercial motor vehicles and drivers at weigh and inspection stations, through roving patrols, and temporary inspection sites on May 17-19, 2022. For 2022, there will be an emphasis on wheel ends.
Roadcheck is not just limited to 16 to 18 wheelers and passenger-carrying motorcoaches but all commercial motor vehicles may be subject to inspection including placarded bobtails.
During International Roadcheck, commercial motor vehicle inspectors examine commercial motor vehicles and the driver’s documentation and credentials using CVSA’s North American Standard Inspection Program procedures, uniform inspection steps, processes, and standards established to ensure consistency in compliance inspections and enforcement. Using the North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria, also established by CVSA, inspectors identify critical out-of-service violations that, if found, require the inspector to restrict the driver or vehicle from travel until those violations or conditions are addressed.
Vehicles that successfully pass a North American Standard Level I or V Inspection without any critical vehicle inspection item violations may receive a CVSA decal. In general, a vehicle with a valid CVSA decal will not be re-inspected during the three months while the decal is valid.
