COLUMBUS, Ohio — Fifty-three roadside inspectors from across North America went head-to-head in the CVSA’s annual North American Inspectors Championship and at the end of the day it was an Ontario inspector that was crowned the winner.
Richard Robinson, a CVSA-certified North American Standard Level I inspector from Ontario won the Jimmy K. Ammons Grand Champion Award at the competition, which was held in conjunction with the National Truck Driving Championships.
Robinson also won the Canadian division after accumulating the most points of all Canadian inspectors.
“We are proud to recognize and reward each of our 53 roadside inspectors from across North America who not only demonstrate their professional excellence and dedication to highway safety but inspire others to do the same,” said Stephen A. Keppler, CVSA’s Executive Director. “Their enthusiasm and passion goes a long way in advancing commercial vehicle safety and saving lives due to the information, techniques and experiences they will share with others in furtherance of improving uniformity and highway safety standards across the continent.”
Another Canadian to place well was John Jackson from Alberta, who won the North American Standard Level V Passenger Vehicle (Motorcoach) Inspection category.
