The 20th annual continentwide Roadcheck, June 5-7, will focus on Level One truck inspections, the most comprehensive, as well as motor coach inspections and seat belt enforcement. Steve Keppler, director of policy and programs for the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, said 10,000 inspectors are expected at 1,000 sites for 72 continuous hours.

The CVSA believes it’s time to increase seat belt enforcement. “We did a lot of outreach on seat belts the past two years,” Keppler said. During last year’s Roadcheck, 59 percent of all truckers were found to be wearing seat belts.

Roadcheck’s purpose is take unsafe drivers and vehicles off the road, increase awareness of inspections and their function, educate drivers about maintenance and gather data. Nearly all Canadian provinces and U.S. states participate in Roadcheck as their budgets allow, said Keppler, who did not know whether any U.S. states would not participate this year.
