Benefits to Your Company:
CVSA roadside inspection criteria focus on minimum critical safety items determined common causal factors in heavy commercial vehicle crashes.
Drivers or vehicles not meeting the criteria may be taken "out of service" and prevented from continuing to operate until the out of service condition is corrected.
Vehicles meeting the criteria at the time of inspection are issued a CVSA decal, which generally exempts the vehicle from further roadside inspections for three months in all CVSA member jurisdictions.
