Greenbelt, Maryland (Aug. 3, 2021) – More than 40,000 commercial motor vehicle inspections were conducted May 4-6 for International Roadcheck, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) annual high-volume, high-visibility inspection and enforcement initiative. Approximately 83.5% of the commercial motor vehicles examined had no out-of-service violations. However, inspectors had to remove 6,710 commercial motor vehicles and 2,080 drivers from roadways – a 16.5% vehicle and 5.3% driver out-of-service rate – over that three-day period after the discovery of out-of-service violations during inspections.


In addition, each year, CVSA highlights a category of violations during International Roadcheck to bring awareness to certain aspects of a routine roadside inspection. This year, inspectors captured data on two categories – hours of service and lighting. There were 1,367 out-of-service lighting violations, accounting for 14.1% of all vehicle out-of-service violations. It was the third most-cited vehicle out-of-service violation, after brake systems and tires. The second focus area, hours of service, was the most cited driver out-of-service violation, accounting for 41.5% (1,203) of all driver out-of-service violations.
