CVSA Blitz is over, but more inspections are just around the corner!

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) International Roadcheck inspection blitz has concluded, but more inspection and enforcement efforts are on the horizon.





Happy Cargo Securement Month! Make sure you are securing your cargo and remember securing load bars and straps when empty are also part of your securment requirements.





As we move past Roadcheck, let's focus on the upcoming truck inspection and enforcement blitzes scheduled by the CVSA.


CVSA CMV Blitz Schedule


**Operation Safe Driver Week**: Scheduled for July 7-13, 2024, this annual one-week campaign focuses on enforcing and educating against unsafe driving practices among both passenger and commercial vehicle drivers.





**Brake Safety Week**: Set for August 25-31, 2024, this week involves commercial motor vehicle inspectors conducting brake system inspections (mainly Level IV Inspections) on large trucks and buses across North America to identify brake-system violations.





*Note: There is also an unannounced CVSA Brake Safety Day planned, which can occur at any time during 2024.


**International Roadcheck**: This event took place across North America from May 14-16, 2024. It is the largest targeted enforcement program for commercial motor vehicles in the world.


Maintaining thorough pre-trip and post-trip inspections is crucial for ensuring the safety and compliance of your commercial vehicle. These inspections help identify potential issues before they become serious problems, reducing the risk of accidents and costly repairs. During pre-trip inspections, drivers should meticulously check key components such as brakes, tires, lights, and cargo securement to confirm they are in proper working order. Post-trip inspections are equally important, allowing drivers to document any defects or issues that arose during the journey. Consistently performing these checks not only enhances safety but also helps maintain a good compliance record during CVSA inspections and enforcement blitzes.
