Safety Tip : Pre-Trip Inspections

The last thing any driver wants to happen is a breakdown. Not only are there safety issues to deal with but also cost, scheduling, and customer relations. Regular pre trip inspections will keep the possibility of a breakdown to a minimum.

Every driver should become familiar with Part 392.7 – Equipment, Inspection, and Use, which is found in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. The best way a driver will know if their equipment is working properly/safely is to do a pre trip inspection.

It is best to follow the same inspection procedures every time so nothing important will be forgotten. The following is not an all-inclusive list, but should be viewed as a guide:

  • Engine compartment/worn belts, leaks, cracked or broken wires. Start engine and listen for any unusual noises, check gauges, and that warning devices are in the vehicle.
  • Check the lights headlights, tail lights, warning lights, directional lights, brake lights and the brake system.
  • Also check Part 396.11 Driver Vehicle Inspection Report.

“Performing a good pre trip will go a long way to help prevent vehicle problems happening on the road.”
