Roadside inspectors are highly trained professionals who save lives every day by keeping unsafe commercial vehicles and drivers off the roads. Each year, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance recognizes the best of the best by inviting member jurisdictions from Canada, the United States and Mexico to participate in the North American Inspectors Championship (NAIC). This is the only event dedicated to recognizing and rewarding commercial vehicle inspector excellence.
