WASHINGTON, D.C. — Roadcheck 2009 is fast approaching. From June 2-4, roadside inspectors across North America will be taking part in the annual blitz.

 

Their message this year, is: “Operate safely alongside passenger vehicles or we will stop you.”

 

More than 1,000 locations across North America will participate in the Roadcheck enforcement campaign, conducting Level 1 inspections and other enforcement activities.

 

“Every year thousands of dedicated inspectors perform roadside inspections which save countless lives and make the highways we all travel on safer,” said Stephen F. Campbell, Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) executive director. “We see great results because of the cooperation among a large group including industry, state and federal government agencies. In addition to enforcement, there are many educational events with government and industry happening all over the continent to drive home the safety message.”

 

Last year, 9,148 inspectors at 1,683 locations inspected 67,931 trucks and buses. Of those, 52,345 were Level 1 inspections – the most comprehensive inspection.
