What to Expect During a 2024 CVSA Roadside Inspection

During a roadside inspection, a CVSA inspector will typically:

  • Review the driver's credentials such as their commercial driver's license (CDL), medical certificate, and hours-of-service (HOS) documentation.

  • Inspect the vehicle for any safety violations, such as brake system problems, tire issues, or cargo securement failures.

  • Ask the driver questions about their travels, cargo, and vehicle maintenance.

2024 Focus Areas

In 2024, CVSA is focusing on two key areas during roadside inspections:

  • Hazardous driving behaviors: This includes speeding, distracted driving, and following too closely.

  • Critically important vehicle violations: This includes brake system problems, tire issues, and cargo securement failures.
