CVSA International Roadcheck May 17-19th 2022

04/21/2022 Written by: Andy Engardio

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) International Roadcheck dates are May 17th-19th, 2022.

This year’s focus is on wheel ends. 

Historically, wheel end components account for a quarter of vehicle out-of-service violations. Wheel end components support the heavy loads carried by commercial motor vehicles, and are pivotal to maintain stability, control, and are critical for braking.

For the industry, this blitz is used to set and measure standards and consistency from inspectors around the country. 

For motor carriers, these three days can swing the next few months. Major violations will stay with carriers for 36 months and can damage the CSA scores and ISS rating. In contrast, clean inspections can result in a CVSA decal which generally means the vehicle will not be reinspected for the next three months that it is valid.

Currently, we are advising our clients to spend the next few weeks making sure drivers are trained for their pre-trip inspection. The extra 10 minutes that this task can take can save future headaches when the inspection happens.
