International Roadcheck Starts Today, May 17


Remember, International Roadcheck starts tomorrow, May 17, and lasts until Thursday, May 19. International Roadcheck is a 72-hour high-visibility, high-volume commercial motor vehicle inspection and enforcement initiative. Each year, CVSA focuses on a specific aspect of a roadside inspection. This year, the focus will be on wheel ends. To help drivers and motor carriers prepare for International Roadcheck, CVSA created a downloadable informational flyer on wheel ends.
