CVSA International Roadcheck Enforcement Efforts

State Police Director Nathan Noyes announces enforcement efforts of New Hampshire State Troopers during the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's (CVSA) International Roadcheck. The event is an annual 72 hour enforcement initiative where commercial motor vehicle inspectors throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico check large trucks and motorcoaches at inspection sites, weigh stations, strategic locations, and roving patrols. The State Police is pleased to announce that there were no fatal motor vehicles crashes involving commercial motor vehicles during this period.

Beginning Wednesday, September 9, 2020 through Friday, September 11, 2020 members of New Hampshire State Police – Troop G conducted commercial motor vehicle inspections throughout the State of New Hampshire to ensure safe operation of larger vehicles and reduce motor vehicle collisions. Members of Troop G are highly skilled Troopers who have received specialized training to conduct roadside inspections of commercial motor vehicles.

During the 72 hour event, Troopers inspected a total of 225 commercial motor vehicles. Troopers issued 10 CVSA decals to commercial motor vehicles that passed a Level I inspection where no critical violations were found according to the North American Standard Out-of- Service Criteria. Troopers also discovered 394 violations, of which 66 were so severe that they created a condition where the vehicle or its driver was placed out of service. In total, 33 vehicles were placed out of service for critical safety violations, while 14 drivers were placed out of service for violations including possessing drugs, operating while not medically qualified, violating restrictions of driving hours, and not holding the proper class of driver's license. Troopers issued 42 citations as a result of commercial motor vehicle inspections.

The New Hampshire State Police are committed to ensuring safe travel throughout the State and will continue our efforts to reduce collisions during the summer season.
