When was the last time you checked your tires? Are they up to legal standard? It’s time to get them checked before law enforcement does.
This year’s the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) 29th annual Roadcheck Inspection will take place from June 7th-June 9th. For 72 hours, thousands of trucks will be stopped and inspected for safety purposes.
This year’s inspection focuses on tires. The organization states that tires will be checked for:
- tire pressure
- tire tread depth
- to insure nothing is lodged between dual tires
- the overall condition of the tires
The roadcheck will also include a full 37-step Level I inspections.
The International Roadcheck is a joint effort between the CVSA, FMCSA, law enforcement, as well as Canadian and Mexican Transportation agencies.
During last years Roadcheck, 44,989 were North American Standard Level I Inspections took place in the 72-hour period. 21.6 percent of vehicles (9,732) inspected were placed out of service.
