Customers pass with flying colors during CVSA Roadcheck
The annual CVSA Roadcheck occurred in Canada, Mexico and the United States on June 5-7. It is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial vehicles in the world, with an average of 17 trucks inspected every minute. The 72-hour blitz included a 37-step procedure to examine the driver operating requirements as well as vehicle mechanics. Drivers were required to provide hours-of-service documentation and operating credentials.
“The top reason drivers were placed out of service during 2017 International Roadcheck was for hours-of-service violations,” said CVSA President Capt. Christopher Turner of the Kansas Highway Patrol. “32 percent of drivers who were placed out of service during last year’s three-day International Roadcheck were removed from our roadways due to violations related to hours-of-service regulations. It’s definitely an area we need to call attention to this year.”
The Department of Transportation began enforcing the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate on April 1st (after a three month grace period) and continue to make compliance an area of focus.
Several Coretex clients received inspections last week. We are proud to announce that all of the customers using our ELD solution went through successfully with clean records that were transferred to the FMCSA site. Job well done!
