Over 21% of trucks were placed out of service during Roadcheck 2018


Today the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) released the results from this year’s Roadcheck inspection campaign.

This year, Roadcheck took place June 5 — 7 throughout the United States and Canada. This year’s inspection blitz focused on Hours of Service regulation compliance. From the CVSA: “Since the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate went into effect on Dec. 18, 2017, throughout the United States, with CVSA’s NAS Out-of-Service Criteria effective April 1, 2018, this year’s International Roadcheck, held two months after out-of-service enforcement began, served as the perfect opportunity to highlight the importance of hours-of-service regulations and compliance.

Here is a rundown of the results from Roadcheck 2018.

  • 67,502 roadside inspections were conducted in 72 hours.
  • 11,897 vehicles were placed out of service.
  • 2,664 drivers were placed out of service.
  • 43.7% of all driver out-of-service conditions were related to hours of service violations.
  • Less than less than 2 percent of all inspected drivers were placed out of service for hours-of-service violations.

  • The top driver out-of-service conditions were for hours of service (1,326), wrong class license (648) and false record of duty status (308).
