In June, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) conducted 74,072 truck and bus inspections during the 25th Annual Roadcheck. CVSA-certified inspectors conduct compliance, enforcement and educational initiatives targeted at various elements of motor carrier, vehicle, driver and cargo safety and security.
