About 10,000 federal, state, provincial and local truck and bus inspectors will fan out at more than 1,500 locations across North America Tuesday through Thursday for the annual â€œRoadcheckâ€� inspections on commercial vehicles.
During the 72-hour event, inspectors will conduct comprehensive North American Standard Level I Inspections, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance said.
This yearâ€™s focus will be on vehicle brake systems and preventing driver fatigue by conducting hours-of-service compliance checks, said CVSA, whichrepresents law enforcement personnel who conduct truck safety inspections in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
Maryland State Police will host the Roadcheck kickoff event to underscore the importance of comprehensive driver and vehicle safety inspections of trucks and buses and on enforcing safety belt use.
The event will begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.
