National Tank Truck Carriers reminded carriers and drivers that the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) annual International Roadcheck enforcement blitz takes place June 5-7.
This year’s Roadcheck focus is hours of service compliance, especially electronic logging device enforcement. During Roadcheck, inspectors try to complete as many Level 1 inspections as possible.
Level 1 inspections include both driver and vehicle inspections. Hazardous materials inspections are also conducted if hazmat is being transported on the vehicle.
Hours of service-related out of service (OOS) violations are listed below. Suggested and maximum fines for violating the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are available in Part 383. The exact OOS criteria for all violations can be purchased from CVSA’s website.
Hours of Service-related OOS Violations:
*Driver OOS until time eligible:
• Violation of the 11-hour driving rule;
