CVSA Announces 2015 Blitz Dates

CVSA has announced the dates and areas of focus for the 2015 International Roadcheck (aka DOT Blitz). This year's IRC will be in the first week of June, specifically June 2 through June 4, 2015, and will focus on Cargo Securement.

Even though Cargo Securement is the focus, we can expect (from past years) that most CMVs running on this weekend will be given some form of inspection (Either a level 1 or level 2).

Says the CVSA about the event:
International Roadcheck, now in its 28th year, is the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with nearly 17 trucks or buses inspected, on average, every minute across North America during a 72-hour period in early June. Each year, approximately 10,000 CVSA-certified local, state, provincial and federal inspectors in every jurisdiction across North America perform the truck and bus inspections.
International Roadcheck is an annual three-day event when CVSA-certified inspectors conduct compliance, enforcement and educational initiatives targeted at various elements of motor carrier, vehicle, driver and cargo safety and security.
Since its inception in 1988, roadside inspections conducted during Roadcheck have numbered over 1.4 million, resulting in more than 318 lives saved and 5,840 injuries avoided. It also provides an opportunity to educate industry and the general public about the importance of safe commercial vehicle operations and the roadside inspection program.
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) sponsors International Roadcheck with participation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Mexico).
We will update as more information becomes available. Read more about it here.
