Guy Young, Georgia Motor Trucking Association, encouraged attendees at the National Safety Conference for the Poultry Industry to take advantage of resources like Roadcheck, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s 72-hour road check, scheduled for June 2-4 across the country.

More than 70,000 inspections by 8,500 inspectors are expected to take place in this year’s Roadcheck.

Young also described other programs like the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Safety and Fitness Electronic Records System, which offers company safety data and related services to those in the industry and the public over the Internet.

The SAFER system also allows companies to see what the FMCSA knows about their operations. Users can search FMCSA databases, register for a USDOT number, pay fines online, order company safety profiles, challenge FMCSA data using the DataQs system, access the Hazardous Material Route registry, obtain National Crash and Out of Service rates for Hazmat Permit Registration, get printable registration forms and find information about other FMCSA Information Systems.

CVSA sponsors Roadcheck each year with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Mexico).
