Chart of the Month: CVSA Roadcheck Violations Decreasing, but Slowly

From June 6-8, 2017, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will inspect 15 trucks or buses and their drivers per minute during a 72-hour period in the 30th annual International Roadcheck. As fleet management technology becomes more widely adopted in the trucking industry, fleet managers, maintenance managers and drivers, themselves, can anticipate many of these violations. This may be why CVSA Roadcheck violations have slowly decreased over recent years. However, data still shows room for improvement. Out of Service (OOS) driver violations hover at approximately 3.5%, with Hours of Service and false logs accounting for 63.2% in 2016. OOS vehicle violations are much higher at just over 21% for vehicles, with brake adjustment and system violations (45.7% of vehicle violations in 2016). The technology to prevent violations during CVSA’s Roadcheck and year-round is at every carriers’ fingertips. Let’s see if, in 2017, trucking companies and their drivers maintain and accelerate this positive trend of improvement.
