BISMARCK, N.D. – For the second consecutive year, a North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) trooper received national awards at the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) North American Inspectors Championship. Last week in Minneapolis, Trooper Josh Anderson placed in three categories of competition against 50 roadside inspectors representing jurisdictions across North America.
Trooper Anderson, a CVSA-certified North American Standard inspector, won first place in Standard Level I Inspection and second place in North American Standard Hazardous Materials/Transportation of Dangerous Goods and Cargo Tank/Bulk Packagings Inspection. Anderson was also a member of the highest scoring nine-member inspection team. Last year, Trooper John Sova was awarded the Grand Champion Award for his performances in six competition categories. These knowledgeable, highly trained troopers contribute to the overall commercial motor vehicle safety in the state.
CVSA is an international not-for-profit organization comprised of federal motor carrier safety officials and industry representatives from the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Their mission is to promote commercial motor vehicle safety and security by providing leadership to enforcement, industry and policy makers.
