Vehicle Maintenance & the Pre-Trip Inspection

Vehicle maintenance is extremely important to ensure that the vehicle is safe to operate and preforms as it is suppose to. Vehicle inspection, repair, and maintenance standards are critical to the safe operation of commercial motor vehicles. They are designed to reduce accidents, injuries, and fatalities resulting from unsafe vehicles operating on the highways.

The Pre-Trip Inspection is done prior to beginning a new work day, job, or trip. There are three major reasons why a pre-trip inspection is required. First, it is the law. Secondly, it reduces accidents, injuries, and fatalities and legal liability is reduced. Lastly, expensive roadside repairs can be avoided if a problem is spotted before a driver is on the road. At the end of the final trip of the day you should conduct a post-trip inspection on your vehicle.
