Spring is here and along with improved weather, you can look forward to an increase in roadside inspection activity.
Conduct a comprehensive pre and post trip inspection. Record the time you spend conducting the inspection on-duty or line 4 of your electronic logs.
The report must identify the vehicle and cover at least the following parts and accessories:
- Service brakes including trailer brake connections
- Parking (hand) brake
- Steering mechanism
- Lighting devices and reflectors
- Windshield Wipers
- Rear vision mirrors
- Coupling devices
- Wheels and rims
- Emergency equipment
If a “No Defect” inspection is issued by a state or federal enforcement officer you will be entitled to a bonus.
