CVSA seeks to define parameters of ‘e-inspections’
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance continued work this week at its Workshop event in Chicago on defining an “electronic inspection” and the parameters of a new North American Standard Electronic Inspection.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration itself is testing its Wireless Roadside Inspection program in at least five states, and the partially automated “e-inspection” Level 3 demonstration by Drivewyze and telematics partners is being conducted in at least four states.
