The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) recently revealed its two focus areas for the 2024 International Roadcheck, which is scheduled for May 14-16.

Focus 1. Alcohol & controlled substance possession
This particular focus is prompted by:

  • A recent increase in prohibited drivers listed in the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse, and
  • The continued trend of alcohol & controlled substance possession and use across North America.

Focus 2. Tractor protection systems
CVSA’s additional focus on tractor protection systems aims to increase awareness of critically important vehicle parts that are sometimes overlooked during daily inspections. Some of these parts include:

  • Anti-bleed back valves,
  • Tractor protection valves, and
  • Trailer supply valves.

During the 72-hour inspection, CVSA-certified law enforcement personnel across Mexico, the U.S., and Canada will examine motor vehicles to verify state, federal, provincial, and territorial regulatory compliance. These inspections will take place at weigh/inspection stations, mobile patrols, and temporary sites.

Now is a good time to proactively prepare your fleet for a successful Roadcheck!

Having confidence in your drug and alcohol testing program will be critical during this year’s CVSA International Roadcheck.  Get help from our experts as you prepare for the May 14-16 inspection event.
