Arlington, Va. – American Trucking Associations President and CEO Bill Graves issued the following statement:

“The issue of highway safety, and in particular the safety of the trucking industry, has been at the forefront of the national conversation for several days due to a high profile incident in New Jersey.
 

On June 5th, American Trucking Associations leaders applauded the Senate Appropriations Committee for adopting a common sense solution proposed by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to address the unjustified changes to the restart provisions of the hours-of-service restart rules.
 

Roadcheck, the annual inspection blitz done by a joint effort of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and others, will take place June 3-5.

CVSA says roughly 10,000 inspectors from state, local and federal enforcement agencies will during the 72-hour period be stationed at 1,500 inspection points across the U.S. to do roadside inspections of trucks and buses.
