This year marks the 30th year of International Roadcheck. The Roadcheck is a 3 day event meant to promote safety among truckers that will run from June 6-8. During that time, an average of 15 commercial motor vehicles will be inspected every minute across the country. It’s a valuable opportunity for CVSA-certified inspectors to promote compliance, enforcement and education for motor carrier, vehicle and driver safety. It’s also a great opportunity for us to talk to our drivers (and others) about the importance of safety. Read on to learn a bit more about the Roadcheck and Liquid Trucking’s commitment to safety.
This year, inspectors will be placing an emphasis on cargo securement. Since the Roadcheck began in 1988, inspectors have inspected over 1.4 million vehicles. Last year, inspectors placed 21.5% of trucks inspected (that’s 9,080) out of service. Brakes and hours were the top out-of-service violations. Those are some big numbers! Hopefully that will serve as a reminder to all drivers that road safety encompasses many aspects and that they need to remain vigilant at every step of the way. This year, drivers should expect to have the 37 step North American Standard Level I Inspection performed on their truck.
Liquid Trucking’s commitment to safety is second to none. We are proud of the way we train our drivers and we are especially proud of the way they conduct themselves on the road. For us, taking care of our equipment is the foundation of successful work. Our drivers know that when they take are en route to deliver a load to a customer, they’re not just working for us, and they’re not just working for the customer, either. They are also working for the safety and well-being of the general public whom they share the road with and who will ultimately benefit from the product they deliver. We take great pride in our safety record.
