Wheel ends will be the focus for this year’s International Roadcheck, running from May 17 to 19. As the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) says, “Wheel end components support the heavy loads carried by commercial motor vehicles, maintain stability and control, and are critical for braking. Violations involving wheel end components historically account for about one quarter of the vehicle out-of-service violations discovered during International Roadcheck”.
Make sure you’re inspecting your equipment so that everyone can get home safely. Wheel ends have been routinely identified as a top ten issue in past International Roadchecks.
