Attention Truckers and Motor Carriers- Roadcheck 2023 is Coming!
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has announced its annual focus on trucking and enforcement efforts. CVSA holds multiple events each year intended on improving highway safety by promoting physical checks on vehicles and drivers to verify proper vehicle maintenance as well as driver fitness and behaviors.
The annual 72-hour event is the largest enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world. Each year CVSA targets a focus item (but does not exclude other safety concerns). This year, the focus will be on Anti-locking Braking System (ABS)
