To help drivers prepare for the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s 2020 International Roadcheck, Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores announced that it will offer professional drivers free TirePass inspections and half-priced DOT inspections at Love’s Truck Care and Speedco locations from Sept. 7-11.
During this time, drivers can also get a complimentary visual inspection with the purchase of a tire or an oil change service package.
The CVSA International Roadcheck takes place Sept. 9-11, and inspectors will be out across the U.S. conducting inspections of commercial motor vehicles and drivers. It’s the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with nearly 15 trucks or buses inspected every minute across North America. The focus of this year’s Roadcheck is on the driver requirements component of a roadside inspection.
“Love’s Truck Care and Speedco team members want to help drivers be safe and legal on the road and this event aims to help drivers be both of those things,” said Gary Price, executive vice president of truck care for Love’s. “We know time is important to professional truck drivers, so by having the TirePass inspection completed — including mud flap and light inspections -— while they fuel up, we can save them time and prepare them for CVSA Roadcheck.”
Tire-related issues tend to be at the top of the list for placing drivers out of service. Using Love’s TirePass ensures any potential tire-related compliance violations are identified and properly addressed before professional drivers roll up to an inspection. Love’s TirePass is an in-lane tire inflation and assessment service, available on the inside diesel lane at Love’s Travel Stops across the country.
During the 2019 International Roadcheck, out of approximately 3.36 million inspections conducted, 952,938 driver violations were discovered.
Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores operates more than 520 locations in 41 states. Founded in 1964 and headquartered in Oklahoma City, the company remains family-owned and operated and employs more than 27,000 people.
Love’s provides professional truck drivers and motorists with 24-hour access to clean and safe places to purchase gasoline, diesel fuel, fresh coffee, restaurant offerings and more. Love’s has more than 390 truck service centers, which include on-site and stand-alone Speedco and Love’s Truck Care locations. Love’s and Speedco combined is the largest oil change, preventive maintenance and total truck care nationwide network. Love’s is committed to providing customers with “Clean Places, Friendly Faces” at every stop.
