Staying on the Right Side of the FMCSA During Roadside Inspections

Roadside inspections are examinations of commercial motor vehicles by Motor Carrier Safety Inspectors, who conduct roadside inspections on commercial motor vehicles and drivers to check that they are in compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and/or Hazardous Materials Regulations, according to the FMCSA, the agency that performs the inspections along with the DOT Motor Carrier Division. In 2016 alone, the FMCSA conducted over 3.4 million roadside inspections.

Roadside inspections are a daily occurrence for drivers. The main purpose of roadside inspections is to allow these inspectors to carry out random safety checks, usually – but not always – at weigh station inspection stations. Motor carrier inspectors use the North American Uniform Out-of-Service Criteria to determine whether a violation will result in a citation, and if the violation is severe enough, the driver may be placed out of service. Once declared “out-of-service,” the driver cannot operate a CMV until the violations are corrected. Roadside inspections can occur almost anywhere and are not limited to being conducted at weigh stations. In fact, portable inspection sites can be set up at rest areas or truck stops or on rural roadways. Load securement is always one of the items scrutinized in all roadside inspections – not only flatbed loads but dry van load securement is a key compliance area as well.

This presentation by expert speaker Mark Dixon will address the crucial criteria for compliance with federal regulations and explain what trucking company owners as well as drivers need to be aware of in order to stay on the right side of the FMCSA during roadside inspections. Attendees will learn all about roadside inspections, the different types, the top 20 violations, the consequences, and how to be best prepared when undergoing an inspection. Load securement will also be covered during this conference.
