More than 15,500 out of service violations discovered during three day inspection blitz


The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) released the results from the largest truck inspection effort of the year.

On December 17, the CVSA released the results from International Roadcheck 2020.

This year, International Roadcheck took place September 9 — 11 in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Roadcheck was postposted from the originally scheduled dates of May 5 — 7 due to COVID-19 concerns.

This year, Roadcheck inspectors focused on driver requirement violations, which could include violations related to the driver’s age, commercial driver’s license or operator’s/chauffeur’s license or permits, medical/physical requirements, record of duty status, sickness or fatigue, or intoxicating beverages, drugs and other substances.

During the three-day event, a total of 50,151 inspections were conducted throughout Canada, Mexico and the U.S. The total number of out-of-service vehicle violations that were discovered was 12,254. The total number of driver out-of-service violations was 3,247, bringing the total number of out-of-service violations to 15,501.
