Compliance with safe load regulations key in Roadcheck 2017

With the annual International Roadcheck inspection event set to take place June 6-8, motorists in Georgia and other states across the country may want to know more about the focus of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's 2017 safety campaign. This year, CVSA enforcers will be emphasizing cargo securement in anticipation that additional attention on this area will highlight its importance.

The North American Standard Level I inspections that will primarily be conducted during the Roadcheck campaign examine both trucks and their drivers and are considered to be among the most stringent safety inspections in the industry. Although compliance with safe cargo regulations is a normal part of the annual inspections, the condition of the tie-downs that are used and the ways in which loads are secured will receive pointed scrutiny during the 2017 safety-check blitz.

For guidance in advance of the Roadcheck kickoff, individuals can access a flyer online that contains cargo securement tips. The resource was designed by CVSA to help fleets and drivers avoid being placed out of service for common violations such as insufficient tie-downs, damaged tie-downs, loose tie-downs, failure to prevent shifting or loss of cargo, and failure to properly secure trucking equipment. Drivers are also advised to use best practices and due diligence in order to avoid crashes and protect their companies' safety ratings.

In 2016, enforcers performed more than 60,000 inspections within the International Roadcheck campaign's 72-hour time frame. Regardless of this effort, serious truck accidents may still occur on Georgia roadways, and motorists may suffer loss as the result. Dependent upon the circumstances of each unique situation, a personal injury lawyer may be able to help an injured client seek justice in the form of damages in civil court. In some situations, the lawyer may be able to successfully negotiate a fair settlement with the responsible parties on behalf of the client outside of the courtroom.
