From June 6-8, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance will be conducting commercial truck safety inspections as part of its International Roadcheck inspection blitz in West Virginia and around the country. For this year's inspections, the CVSA will focus on the importance of cargo securement. This is a regular part of Level I inspections, but the CVSA wants to emphasize how it important it is.
A tip sheet is available online from the CVSA that offers reminders to drivers on securing equipment safely and making sure cargo is secure. It also advises checking tie-downs that may be worn or damaged.
