Invest in inspections to save money, hassle later
Updated as of Sept. 4, 2020, to reflect the CVSA International Roadcheck inspection event taking place Sept. 9-11.
The talk around roadside inspections by law enforcement always seems to be about the nitpicky violations owner-operators receive. And, of course, so many believe they should just be able to get the “fix-it warning,” correct the problem and go on down the road.
With the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance-coordinated annual International Roadcheck coming up Sept. 9-11, plenty drivers plan to just not work during that week, as happens every year. But the reality is officers are conducting these same inspections somewhere nearly every day, about 4 million inspections last year.
