POSTPONED: CVSA to Reschedule 3-Day Inspection Blitz Due to COVID-19
Greenbelt, MD – The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) annual three-day inspection blitz known as “International Roadcheck” has been postponed.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the CVSA says it is postponing International Roadcheck until “later in the year” due to concerns relating to the coronavirus pandemic.
In January, CVSA announced this year’s three-day blitz was being moved from June, when it is normally held, to May 5-7, 2020.
CVSA said the move was made because weather may be more favorable for many jurisdictions.
“International Roadcheck has run on-schedule for the past 32 years so its postponement was thoroughly and thoughtfully discussed before we made this decision, but it wasn’t a difficult decision to make,” said CVSA President Sgt. John Samis with the Delaware State Police. “This experience is unprecedented in our modern society and we need to do all that we can to help stop the spread of this global pandemic.”
However, officials also confirmed other enforcement operations remain on-schedule.
CVSA says it will closely monitor the coronavirus outbreak, follow guidance from public health expert leadership, and promptly notify the membership and industry stakeholders of the rescheduled International Roadcheck dates and the status of future scheduled enforcement campaigns.
Transportation Nation Network will continue to monitor further developments.
