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:

  1. Service brakes including trailer brake connections
  2. Parking (hand) brake
  3. Steering mechanism
  4. Lighting devices and reflectors
  5. Tires
  6. Horn
  7. Windshield Wipers
  8. Rear vision mirrors
  9. Coupling devices
  10. Wheels and rims
  11. Emergency equipment

If a “No Defect” inspection is issued by a state or federal enforcement officer you will be entitled to a bonus.
