The special emphasis for 2016 International Roadcheck is tire safety
Each year, International Roadcheck places special emphasis on a category of violations. The special emphasis for 2016 International Roadcheck is tire safety (i.e., measuring the tire tread depth, checking the tire pressure, checking to make sure that no items are lodged between dual tires and examining the overall condition of the tire to make sure that no deep cuts or bulges exist in the sidewalls of the tire). While checking a vehicle's tires is always part of roadside inspections, CVSA is highlighting tire safety as a reminder to drivers and carriers.
