Roadcheck 2013 Ending Today

About 10,000 inspectors in the United States, Canada, and Mexico have conducted safety inspections of trucks and buses for three days -– about 14 inspections per minute, according to the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance.

Some 10,000 federal, state, and local motor carrier inspectors have been busy this week inspecting trucks and buses across North America as part of Roadcheck 2013, which wraps up today. During its 72 hours, an average of 14 commercial vehicles are being inspected per minute, according to the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance.

This year's Roadcheck is taking place June 4-6 in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.The focus this year is on cargo securement and bus safety. Since Roadcheck began in 1988, more than 1 million roadside inspections have been done as part of it. CVSA sponsors it with participation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada, and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Mexico).

CVSA President Mark Savage, a major with the Colorado State Patrol, said Roadcheck "gives the Alliance and its members a powerful and high-visibility mechanism to spotlight the critical role of comprehensive commercial vehicle driver and vehicle safety inspections to prevent roadway tragedies. In addition to our U.S. kickoff for Roadcheck, we are pleased to report that CVSA is also holding an official launch event in Canada. This is the first time an international Roadcheck kickoff event will take place on Canadian soil."

The Canadian kickoff event took place June 5 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, one day after the U.S. kickoff event in Landover, Md.
