The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance CVSA made a decision to move International Roadcheck to later in the year.
According to the CVSA’s release, they will observe the whole situation with the coronavirus pandemic and the new dates will be set when it is absolutely safe and reasonable to do so. Once the rescheduled dates have been selected, CVSA will notify the commercial motor vehicle enforcement community, the motor carrier industry, the press, and the public.
International Roadcheck has run for as long as 32 years therefore its delay was discussed thoroughly before the final decision has been made. This experience is new to our modern society and that is why we need to do everything to stop the spread of COVID-19.
However, it is important to note that even though the Internation Roadcheck will no longer happen on May 5-7, there are still inspections and traffic enforcement on the roadside. As CVSA President Sgt. John Samis with the Delaware State Police said, “Safety doesn’t take a break. It is always our top priority.”
Ukrtransport Inc direly reacts to this time-sensitive crisis, staying constant and focused on guaranteeing that our truck drivers follow all safety regulations when delivering essential goods and services to our communities.
At this time, International Roadcheck is the only public enforcement initiative that has been postponed. Operation Safe Driver Week is still scheduled for July 12-18 and Brake Safety Week is still set for Aug. 23-29.
