Moving It Forward: CVSA 72-Hour Inspection
The week of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) 72-hour inspection, is something we as brokers, know all too well. This is the largest targeted enforcement program in the world for commercial vehicles. It never comes as a surprise, as this consistent yearly inspection occurs, usually on a Tuesday, ending on Thursday in the first week of June.
Approximately 14 trucks or buses are inspected on an average, every minute, from Canada to Mexico during this period. CVSA estimates that these roadside checks have saved 301 lives and prevented 5,530 injuries since it was developed over 27 years ago. Since 1988, CVSA has conducted over 1 million inspections during the 72-hour inspections.
