Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CSVA) announces dates for 2023 enforcement campaigns. The campaigns are held all across North America.
International Roadcheck, scheduled from May 16-18, 2023
The upcoming International Roadcheck event, taking place from May 16th to 18th, 2023, promises to be a significant milestone in promoting road safety across North America. As the world's largest targeted enforcement program for commercial motor vehicles, this annual three-day event will see CSVA-certified inspectors conducting thorough inspections of trucks and buses, ensuring compliance with vital safety regulations and standards. With an average of 15 inspections conducted every minute, the International Roadcheck event serves as a testament to the unwavering commitment to keeping our roads safe for all motorists.
Operation Safe Driver Week is scheduled from July 9-15, 2023
Get ready for a week of increased safety on the roads again as Operation Safe Driver Week takes place from July 9th to 15th, 2023. This nationwide initiative is focused on promoting safe driving habits among both passenger vehicle drivers and commercial motor vehicle drivers through a combination of education, traffic enforcement, and meaningful interactions with law enforcement. With data supporting the effectiveness of traffic stops and interactions with law enforcement in reducing high-risk driving behaviors, this campaign offers a unique opportunity for motorists to learn and adopt safe driving practices. Last year's Operation Safe Driver Week had a special focus on reducing speeding which was the highest violation recorded among commercial motor vehicles. With over 2,500 warnings and nearly 1,500 citations.
Operation Airbrake Program is scheduled from August 20-26, 2023
Lastly, CVSA announced the upcoming Operation Airbrake Program, taking place from August 20th to 26th, 2023, as well as a surprise one-day brake safety enforcement initiative to be held at an undisclosed time. Both campaigns are aimed at promoting brake safety among large trucks and buses operating in North America. Through inspections and enforcement efforts, Commercial motor vehicle inspectors will work to identify brake-system violations, ensuring that vehicles are equipped with properly functioning brakes. Brake safety was highlighted in last year's International Roadcheck campaign, with brake-related violations accounting for 25% of all out-of-service violations.
