During the annual compliance event called International Roadcheck 2019 being conducted Tuesday through Thursday this week commercial vehicle drivers throughout North America will find themselves undergoing Level I inspections – at the rate of nearly four trucks every minute during the 72-hour period.

Roadcheck 2019 in effect this week

Last year's Roadcheck saw nearly one in six trucks that were caught up in the inspection event placed out of service.

that's crazy! Sure these road checks are a PITA to get caught up in and forced to wait your turn to get inspected but I'm quite happy it helps get some of these unsafe trucks off the road.

And just as important, I think it forces some Companies to "catch up" on things they have been letting slide. I have no problem with it.

NY and MA have roads that will destroy your suspension. Now they will give you a ticket for the suspension they destroyed. Awesome! :)

Manages to roll through 6 stations yesterday without getting flagged down. Inspectors were all busy with other trucks. Just have to see how tomorrow goes

Same with me I'm surprised I didn't get pulled over for inspection. I went through South Carolina Georgia and Alabama. Today I went through Mississippi all the weigh stations got into Louisiana and Texas and it was raining so hard even though there were DOT There, I don't think they wanted to get wet... LOL

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Should have said the weigh stations in Mississippi were all closed. I'm not kidding the way-station I went through on I-20 in Texas there were 10 dot Cars on each side. But I didn't see a single officer outside of their vehicle

I wish I would get inspected we have a bonus depending on the inspection level, as long as we are clean.

Best wishes for ya’ll. I’m sitting this one out. At the house acting like I have a normal life. But I had a DOT insp last week at a T/A and passed with flying colors.

Starting from this past Sunday heading from Iowa -> NE -> SD -> ND -> MN -> IA -> MO -> AR I've only seen 2 open Scales and was pre-pass on both.

Lets' see what the rest of the week brings.
