2024 International Roadcheck

Press Center

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) International Roadcheck is scheduled for May 14-16. This commercial motor vehicle inspection and regulatory compliance enforcement initiative will take place in Canada, Mexico, and the United States at weigh/inspection stations, temporary sites, and mobile patrols to verify compliance with federal, state, provincial or territorial regulations. Data from the 72 hours of International Roadcheck will be collected and the results will be released this summer.

Each year, International Roadcheck places special emphasis on a category of violations. This year there will be two focus areas: tractor protection systems, and alcohol and controlled substances. CVSA decided to emphasize alcohol and controlled substances because of the increase in the number of prohibited drivers listed in the U. S. Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse.

In addition, focusing on the tractor protection systems increases awareness for drivers, motor carriers, technicians, and enforcement personnel of these critically important vehicle components; specifically, the tractor protection valve, trailer supply valve and anti-bleed back valve, which may be overlooked during trip and roadside inspections. To assist drivers and motor carriers in the proactive assessment and maintenance of those components, CVSA has provided an inspection bulletin outlining the steps on how to properly check tractor protection systems.

Over the three days of International Roadcheck, inspectors will conduct their routine North American Standard Level I Inspection, which is a thorough 37-step inspection procedure consisting of the examination of vehicle components and driver documentation and requirements.

If out-of-service violations, as outlined in the North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria, are found during an inspection, the vehicle will be restricted from operating until all out-of-service violations have been properly addressed.
