Every year, the CVSA (Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance) activates initiatives throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico aimed at improving highway safety by cracking down on safety violations in the commercial transportation industry.

A “blitz” is defined as a fast, violent attack, usually with bombs dropped from aircraft, or any sudden intensive attack or concerted effort. Additionally, a blitz can refer to a fast intensive nonmilitary campaign or attack, such as an advertising blitz. The term “inspection blitz” is used to describe a targeted enforcement program in which commercial motor vehicles are inspected at an extraordinarily high frequency.
