Iowa DOT shares photos of eye-popping CMV violations to help drivers gear up for 2023’s biggest blitz


Iowa DOT Motor Vehicle Enforcement (MVE) is reminding truck drivers to prepare for the nation’s biggest truck blitz by sharing photos of some major violations discovered last year.

This year, CVSA Roadcheck will take place May 16 — 18 throughout the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. During Roadcheck, CMV inspections will take place at weigh/inspection stations, designated inspection areas, and along roadways. 

Looking ahead to Roadcheck 2023, Iowa DOT MVE recently shared photos of some of the most egregious violations discovered during Roadcheck 2022.

“A few examples of what we located during last year’s International Roadcheck. Don’t forget this year’s check is May 16th-18th. We want you to be the happy driver that walks away with a CVSA decal and not an out of service order. Check over your equipment before you drive and avoid the latter!” officials said.

Check out the photos below.

The truck and driver below passed without violations and received a CVSA decal.

Roadcheck 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 during a 72-hour period.
