NEW ORLEANS, La. — Truck and bus safety at the Mexican/U.S. border will get special attention from the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) at the group’s Spring Workshop.

The event gets under way today and runs through until Thursday in New Orleans, La.

An international panel of experts will discuss whether the U.S./Mexican border is ready to be opened to the free flow of truck traffic between the countries.

The CVSA members who inspect truck and buses along the highways and the international borders play a major role in making sure trucks crossing the border from Mexico meet U.S. safety standards.

Mike Weir, representing Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation, will be the panel moderator. Weir also chairs CVSA’s Legal and Regulatory Affairs Committee.
