CVSA Roadcheck by the Numbers

17,479 of these violations were out-of-service violations. 5.5% of drivers were placed OOS. Of the inspected trucks, almost 20% had at least one violation.


What is Their Area of Focus This Week?

Each year the CVSA selects an area of focus, although they inspect for any and all violations. The focus this year is on driver substance abuse, alcohol possession, vehicle tractor protection, and anti-bleed back systems. You may be asked to assist the officer in inspecting your truck, so be prepared to answer their questions. 

Our Tips for Passing Inspection

  • Have your paperwork in order and easily accessible.
  • Keep your speed down and don’t violate traffic laws.
  • Make sure your logs are all verified each morning.
  • Keep any questionable paraphernalia far far away from your truck!
  • Be respectful and helpful to the officer if you are inspected.
