Special Announcement on Government Road Inspections

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Annual International Roadcheck will take place June 6-8, 2017. Over a 72-hour period, CVSA-certified commercial motor vehicle inspectors in jurisdictions throughout North America will conduct inspections of commercial motor vehicles and their drivers

Enforcement officers across Canada will be inspecting tractor power units and trailer combinations, these are a few areas inspectors will focus on:

Wheel end components

Brake linings/drums

Brake adjustment

Wheel seals/hubs

Lighting/cords/glad-hands

Suspension/shocks

Air hoses/lines

Mud flaps/hangers

Documentation/HOS

Fifth wheels

Catwalks/air hose securement

Steering components

Measure air loss rate

Test tractor protection valve

Low air warning device operation

Slack adjusters

Brake chambers

Pushrod travel

Roadcheck 2017 Focus will be on Load Securement – (Ratchet straps, winch straps, E-Tracks, load straps, winches and hardware will all be inspected for condition and proper utilization), Nothing better than new load straps/ hardware etc.… for an upcoming MOT inspection event.

Why is Compliance So Critical to our Customers?

Last year, during Roadcheck 2016, 17.8% of all the vehicles inspected were placed out of service. Being placed out of service can lead to a multitude of negative consequences, including delayed shipments, lost revenue, a tarnished company image, loss of customers and MOT penalties can negatively affect our customers operating record/authority.

Roadcheck 2016 Results:

·         Total inspections — 62,796

·         Vehicle out-of-service rate — 17.8%

·         Driver out-of-service (OOS) rate — 4%

·         Tire/wheel violations in relation to all vehicle OOS violations — 18.5%

·         Brake-related violations in relation to all vehicle OOS violations — 45.7%

·         Hours of Service (HOS) violations in relation to all driver OOS violations — 46.8%

Note: please see information attachments we may share with our valued customers:  Roadcheck Program Overview, NSC Regulation – Cargo Securement, Enforcement Officers Tips for Professional Drivers.

Inspectors will primarily be conducting the North American Standard Level I Inspection, which is the most thorough roadside inspection. It is a 37-step procedure that includes an examination of both driver operating requirements and vehicle mechanical fitness. Drivers are required to provide items such as their driver’s license, hours-of-service documentation, motor carrier registration and shipping documentation, and inspectors will be checking drivers for seat belt usage and the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. The vehicle inspection includes checking items such as the brake systems, cargo securement, coupling devices, driveline/driveshaft, exhaust systems, frames, fuel systems, lighting devices (required lamps), steering mechanisms, suspensions, tires, van and open-top trailer bodies, wheels, rims and hubs, windshield wipers, and emergency exits (on buses).

International Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with nearly 17 trucks or buses inspected, on average, every minute in Canada, the United States and Mexico during a 72-hour period. Since its inception, more than 1.5 million roadside inspections have been conducted during International Roadcheck campaigns.
