This week, the CVCSA announced that International Roadcheck, previously postponed back in March, has been rescheduled for September 8-11th 2020. According to the CVSA the International Roadcheck is a 3-day period of “high volume, high visibility inspection and enforcement initiative”. During this time, the CVSA in collaboration with the FMCSA, the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada and the Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes (Ministry of Communications and Transportation) of Mexico will conduct inspections in designated locations across North America checking for compliance with local federal regulations. The North American Standard of Out-of-Service Criteria will be utilized to identify critical violations of drivers and vehicles. If any violations are discovered the driver or the motor vehicle will be placed out-of-service until the issue is resolved.
Each year, the CVSA places special emphasis on one aspect of the inspection checklist. This year the focus will be on driver requirements, such as record of duty, license, and seat belts. According to the FMCSA data from 2019, out of the 3.36 million inspections, 952,938 driver violations were identified with approximately 20% of those violations for out-of-service conditions.
In addition to driver requirements, there will also be an inspection of the vehicle. During this portion, the inspectors will be checking for the overall condition of the motor vehicle such as the brake and fuel systems, tires, and securement of cargo. Any violations detected will place the vehicle out-of-service until the issue is corrected.
