Get Ready Now for ROADCHECK 2009 - It Happens June 2-4
During a 72-Hour period in the first week of June, more than 8,500 officials will be inspecting over 60,000 vehicles.
That's a little more than 14 vehicles every 1 minute.
Some facts to consider regarding last year's Roadcheck event:
- A record 67,931 inspections were conducted
- Of the vehicles inspected, 20.8% were placed Out-of-Service for mechanical problems (that's about 14,130 vehicles placed Out-of-Service)
- The Driver Out-of-Service rate was 5.3%, mainly due to log book violations.
WHAT DOES THIS REALLY MEAN?
It means that you can disregard this warning and take the chance of increasing your Out-of-Service rate, which will have a definite negative impact on your company.
You can take the time and make the effort to make certain all drivers and all vehicles are 100% ready for this event. It may reduce your Safestat scores, making your company more marketable and more profitable.
