Here is What Officers Will Focus On During This Years 72 Hour Roadcheck

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.


We’re not sure what led up to this event, but the aftermath is certainly nothing short of a headache for whoever the owner of this Cadillac Escalade is.

We join in as the tow truck has arrived to pull the truck from its watery grave and the sight isn’t pretty as the luxury SUV is slowly rolled out of the abyss.

It seems like everyone on hand has a laugh about it as the truck comes back above the surface after what appears to be a boat launch gone oh so wrong.

Check out the rescue mission in the video below. We’re not sure how one goes about accomplishing such a thing at the boat ramp, but this really looks like a bad time.
