Roadcheck 2013 begins today.  This year’s Roadcheck is scheduled for June 4-6.

Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement campaign on trucks and buses.  Each year, more than 1,000 trucks and buses are inspected each hour, for a 72-hour time period.

Inspection stations are set up throughout North America, from Canada to Mexico.

Last year, 74, 072 trucks and buses were inspected.  A historically low number of trucks and drivers were placed out of service: 22.4% of trucks and 3.9% of drivers were placed OOS.

Roadcheck 2012 focused on braking systems and HOS.
