The CVSA’s International Roadcheck 72-hour North America-wide inspection blitz is scheduled for June 2-4 and they’ll be keeping a close eye on cargo securement. That’s the theme of this year’s blitz, meaning flatdeckers could be facing some additional scrutiny.

On average, 17 truck and bus inspections will be conducted every minute over this three-day period in Canada, the US and Mexico.

“For many types of loads, particularly those that are not sealed or otherwise inaccessible to the driver, regulations require the driver to stop within the first several miles of a trip and recheck the tie-downs and other load securing equipment,” CVSA reminds drivers.

You may want to remind them to, before the first week of June.
