    Operation safe driver week is approaching. This year’s driver enforcement campaign is speeding.

    I-81 enforcement blitz has caught a few drivers and sidelined many trucks.

    I-81 Enforcement Blitz Puts 37 CMVs And 5 Drivers Out Of Service
    A recent enforcement blitz along Interstate 81 conducted by Virginia State Police and Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles resulted in 37 commercial vehicles and 5 drivers being placed out of service.
    In a release on Tuesday, May 7, officials provided more details about their one day blitz which was conducted on Wednesday, April 24.
    Authorities said the focus was on commercial vehicles which, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), accounts for 20 to 30% of the traffic volume on I-81 in the Shenandoah Valley.
    According to officials, the safety enforcement blitz resulted in 37 commercial vehicles and 5 drivers being placed out of service.
    Combined, state police and DMV Size and Weight Compliance Agents issued 161 warnings and 37 tickets.
    Of those tickets, 27 were for equipment violations and four were for violations of commercial driver’s license requirements.
    In addition, 24 commercial vehicles were cited for being overweight.

    Sounds like the enforcement blitz was lacking in manpower.

    Truckers report closed scale houses, light enforcement during Roadcheck blitz June 4-6
    The International Roadcheck inspection blitz kicked off earlier this week in North America, but some U.S. truckers reported that scale houses in some states were closed or they were waved through the scales because inspectors were busy reviewing other commercial vehicles.
    Approximately 9,000 inspectors in North America were expected to inspect commercial vehicles and drivers during the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s annual enforcement blitz scheduled for June 4-6.
    Last year, CVSA inspectors handed out 537 steering-related violations and 286 commercial vehicles were placed out-of-service (OOS). There were 500 suspension violations and 538 suspension-related OOS citations issued.

    I guess this should go as a reminder to always perform that pre-trip inspection.

    Unannounced brake inspection spree leads to 1,600 trucks placed out of service
    More than 1,600 trucks were placed out-of-service during an unannounced nationwide brakes-focused inspection blitz on May 15.
    The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance announced commercial vehicle inspectors conducted 10,358 inspections across the U.S. and Canada and sidelined 1,667 (16.1%) of those trucks.
    CVSA says inspectors paid close attention to violations involving brake hoses/tubing and issued violations to 996 trucks for chafed rubber hoses and to 185 trucks for chafed thermoplastic hoses. In total, there were 1,125 violations that included chafed rubber hoses and 124 violations that included kinked thermoplastic hoses.
    CVSA will hold another brakes-focused enforcement blitz next month, Brake Safety Week, which is scheduled for Sept. 15-21.

    Here is a breakdown of the reported issues found during the last road check. Even some driving on suspended licenses.

    2019 Roadcheck Nabs 17.9% of Vehicles and 4.2% of Drivers
    Commercial vehicle inspectors conducted more than 67,000 inspections during a stepped-up three-day enforcement effort in June, putting 12,019 commercial vehicles and 2,784 drivers out of service.
    That represents a 17.9% overall vehicle out-of-service rate and 4.2% driver out-of-service rate.
    The 2019 Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s International Roadcheck event was conducted June 4-6, during which more than 13,000 inspectors spent 72 hours identifying and removing unsafe heavy trucks and buses from the roadways in the U.S. and Canada.
    The five most common vehicle violations detected by inspectors were for braking systems (4,578 or 28% of total out-of-service violations), tires and wheels (3,156 or 19.3%), brake adjustment (2,801 or 17.1%), cargo securement (1,991 or 12.2%) and lighting devices (1,875 or 11.5%).

    The five most common driver violations were for hours of service (1,179 or 37.2% of total out-of-service violations), wrong class license (714 or 22.5%), false logs (467 or 14.7%), “other” violations (351 or 11.1%) and suspended license (232 or 7.3%).
