The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) may have finished the last major truck inspection efforts of 2021, but the group is already looking ahead to 2022.
Truckers can breath a (short) sigh of relief after the CVSA’s Brake Safety Week 2021 concluded on August 28, but the first blitz of 2022 is now only a matter of months away.
Here are the dates you need to know.
- International Roadcheck is scheduled for May 17 — 19, 2022. The 72 hour event is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with nearly 15 trucks or buses inspected, on average, every minute across North America.
- Operation Safe Driver Week is scheduled for July 10 — 16, 2022. During this enforcement effort, officers throughout North America are on the lookout for commercial motor vehicle drivers and passenger vehicle drivers engaging in risky driving behaviors.
- Brake Safety Week is scheduled for August 21 — 27, 2022. During this campaign, commercial motor vehicle inspectors conduct brake system inspections on large trucks and buses throughout North America to identify brake-system violations.
- Unannounced one-day brake safety enforcement initiative — This can be held at any time during the year and also involves inspectors checking brakes to identify brake violations. The previous surprise brake safety day took place on May 26, 2021.
