2023 CVSA International Roadcheck: Everything You Need to Know

on Tuesday, 16 May 2023.

OA 2023 RoadcheckThe Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) is conducting its annual International Roadcheck this week, from May 16-18. During this 72-hour period, CVSA-certified inspectors in Canada, Mexico, and the United States will conduct inspections of commercial motor vehicles and drivers at weigh/inspection stations, designated inspection areas, and along roadways.

This year's International Roadcheck will focus on anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and cargo securement. ABS is a safety feature that helps prevent wheels from locking up during braking, which can cause a loss of control. Cargo securement is important to prevent cargo from shifting during transport, which can also cause a loss of control.

ABS violations are not out-of-service violations, but they can lead to fines. Cargo securement violations can result in vehicles being placed out-of-service, which means they cannot be driven until the violation is corrected.

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance is urging drivers and motor carriers to prepare for the International Roadcheck by ensuring that their vehicles are properly maintained and that cargo is properly secured. Drivers can find more information about the International Roadcheck and how to prepare on the CVSA website.

Here are some tips for drivers and motor carriers to help prepare for the 2023 International Roadcheck:

  • Make sure your vehicle is properly maintained. This includes checking the brakes, tires, and cargo securement system.
  • Be prepared to answer questions about your vehicle and your driving record.
  • Be courteous to inspectors. They are there to help keep you safe.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your vehicle is safe and that you are not cited during the International Roadcheck.
