CVSA Releases 2022 International Roadcheck Results

Recently, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) released the results of its 2022 International Roadcheck. This inspection and enforcement initiative highlights the work of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) inspectors throughout North America and acknowledges the compliance of motor carriers and professional drivers through the issuance of a CVSA decal on eligible vehicles.

In total, 59,026 inspections were conducted in 2022 during the three-day initiative. Approximately 76.9% of the CMVs examined had no out-of-service (OOS) violations. However, 8,718 vehicles were removed from the roadways for OOS violations, and 3,118 drivers were deemed unfit to perform their duties.

The CVSA places a different emphasis on the International Roadcheck each year. The specific focus in 2022 was on wheel ends. Out of the top 10 vehicle OOS violations, tires ranked second, and wheels came in seventh. In total, there were 3,227 OOS tire violations, accounting for 19.4% of OOS violations, and 721 OOS wheel violations, accounting for 4.3% of OOS violations.

Specifically, the five most common OOS vehicle violations in the United States found during the International Roadcheck inspections were braking systems – 3,992 (24.0%), tires – 3,227 (19.4%), defective service brakes – 2,142 (12.9%), lights – 2,084 (12.5%), and cargo securement – 1,647 (9.9%). Meanwhile, the five most common violations that resulted in a driver being put
out of service included false logs – 1,901 (45.0%), wrong class license – 1,045 (24.7%), suspended license – 251 (5.9%), no medical card – 222 (5.3%), and other (e.g., moving violations, cellphone use) – 205 (4.9%).
