It’s that time again. This year’s 2019 Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance International Roadcheck inspection event will be taking place June 4-6. While last year the focus was on hours-of-service violations, this year will be focused on steering and suspensions. Below are some of the results of last year’s efforts.

• The top three violations that resulted in an out of service vehicle order were braking systems (28.4%), tire or wheel violations (19.1%) and brake adjustments (16.3%)
• Of the hazmat vehicles that received a Level I inspection, 13.1% were placed out of service for vehicle related violations.
