Roadcheck 2024 is scheduled to take place from May 14th to May 16th, marking a significant period for commercial motor vehicle operators and inspectors across North America.

Aside from the specific focus areas, the International Roadcheck campaign aims to achieve several overarching objectives:

  1. CVSA Decal Affixation: Commercial motor vehicles that successfully pass a Level I or Level V Inspection receive the CVSA decal, signifying compliance and safety.
  2. Out-of-Service Conditions Resolution: Promptly removing commercial motor vehicles and drivers with out-of-service conditions from roadways until issues are resolved to mitigate risks.
  3. Uniformity and Consistency: Advancing CVSA’s mission of ensuring uniformity, consistency, and reciprocity in commercial motor vehicle inspections across North America.
  4. Educational Outreach: Educating industry stakeholders and the public about the importance of safe commercial motor vehicle operations and the significance of roadside inspections in maintaining safety standards.
