Q:

When is CVSA Safe Driver Week, and what will be the focus this year?

A:

This year the annual Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) Roadcheck is scheduled to take place May 4th – 6th 2021. The CVSA will put emphasis on lighting and Hours of Service (HOS). Inspectors will be checking for crucial vehicle violations outlined in the North American Standard of Out-of-Service Criteria. If violations are found, the vehicle will be placed out of service. The Roadcheck is not limited to these violations. Drivers should be prepared for inspections of all areas, including Medical Examiner’s Certificate (MEC), Daily Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR). Other driver-focused categories include seat belt use, sickness or fatigue, and alcohol and/or drug possession or impairment.

Prepare Drivers for Roadchecks

Inspections are conducted every day of the year across North America, but drivers should realize the risk of being stopped will increase during the Roadcheck.
