The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance will hold its annual Roadcheck event June 7-9, CVSA said in a statement.
The 72-hours event will bring roadside inspectors to more than 1,000 checkpoints on highways across North America to monitor truck compliance with safety regulations.
In the 2010 Roadcheck event, CVSA found that 95.6% of drivers complied with safety regulations, the same figure as the previous year, which was a record. Overall vehicle compliance was 80%, down slightly from the year before.
CVSA represents law enforcement personnel who conduct truck safety inspections in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
