six weeks to prepare for Roadcheck 2021
CVSA's annual Roadcheck event is scheduled for May 4-6 this year – at the time of writing, that's just a few short weeks away! The focus this year will be on lighting and Hours of Service violations. Are your drivers ready?
ITI is teaming up with the Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association to bring you a free webinar with everything you need to know for a successful safety inspection. On April 15 at 10am CST, join me and Inspector Christopher Caldwell for a hands-on discussion of helpful tips and advice based on years of experience in our field.
New Year, Same Violations
Preparing drivers for Roadcheck inspections is easier than you think. Year after year, the same violations appear again and again. The order might change slightly from one year to the next (usually depending on the focus area), but these are the top five Roadcheck violations we see every single year for vehicles:
- Braking system
- Cargo Securement
- Brake Adjustment
And here are the top five violations for drivers:
- Hours of Service
- Wrong License
- Log Falsification
- Suspended License
The good news is that fleets can predict exactly what they need to train on because the topics are the same each year. Need a little more guidance? Join our April 15 webinar for hands-on tips and practical advice to help your drivers pass this year's Roadcheck with flying colors.
