Well, its that time again! International Roadcheck 2016. This year it is scheduled for June 7 to June 9. That’s a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, peak trucking days.
If you don’t know what this is, its a 72 hour period when the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance puts 10,000 inspectors across North America to inspect trucks and buses. This includes the FMCSA, the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administration and Mexico’s Secretary of Communications and Transportation. They use all areas of law enforcement for this safety blitz.
The focus of Roadcheck 2016 will be tires. Tire pressure, tread depth and anything else that can go wrong with a tire. Although the emphasis is tires, they can still do a complete inspection. They may be running your DOT number to see if there are issues, checking your Commercial Drivers License, pretty much anything is up for inspection.
