What To Expect From Upcoming Truck Inspections

One thing we like to say around here is "stay ready, so you don't have to get ready".

We are halfway through 2019 and there are still a couple truck inspections and important dates, like the 2019 Form 2290 filing deadline, you have to make it through.

The CVSA's Operation Safe Driver Week 2019 and the CVSA's Brake Safety Week are approaching.

If you're still operating your rig, it is safe to say you survived the CVSA Roadcheck 2019.

If you have been in the industry you know that the truck inspections don't stop there. Here are a few upcoming truck inspection dates you need to be aware of.


Upcoming Truck Inspection Dates


CVSA's Operation Safe Driver Week 2019 (July 14-20, 2019)
The first truck inspection date you should remember is the CVSA's Operation Safe Driver Week 2019. This inspection will last from July 14th to July 20th.

 Each year this inspection focusses on some form of dangerous driver behavior and this year there is an emphasis on speeding. 

During this week, North American jurisdictions will be promoting and endorsing the message: "Late won't kill you, speeding will"

Speeding is the one thing we have all been found guilty of from time to time, so this comes as a forewarning to every trucker with a led foot, who may get stopped.

The CVSA will partner with law enforcement personnel to issue warnings and/or citations to drivers operating a commercial vehicle or passenger vehicle, driving at unlawful speeds.



Previous Operation Safe Driver Week Results
During the CVSA's Operation Safe Driver Week last year, there was nearly 17,000 passenger vehicle pulled over alone for speeding and almost 2,000 commercial vehicles. In addition to those, 17 commercial vehicles were given a citation for driving too fast for the weather conditions.


CVSA's Brake Safety Week 2019: (September 15-21, 2019)
The CVSA's Brake Safety Week will be taking place from September 15th through 201th. Roadside safety truck inspections will be conducted on commercial vehicles throughout North American jurisdictions. 

During this truck inspection, any vehicle found with critical brake violations, or other critical violations, will not be able to travel until they are up to protocol.  

Any commercial vehicle that passes the truck inspection during the CVSA Brake Safety Week 2019 will receive a CVSA decal to identify them as such. 

Alongside the truck inspection, law enforcement will also be doing outreach and bringing awareness to the importance of proper brake safety.
