As well as being a regulatory requirement for commercial motor vehicles (CMVs), proper vehicle inspections can go a long way in ensuring your vehicle’s safe and efficient operation.
Vehicle inspections can help in finding mechanical problems before they cause a breakdown or accident. This can help in avoiding costly on-the-road repairs as well as delays in deliveries.
A thorough vehicle inspection program can also play a role in avoiding citations and/or out-of-service orders during a roadside inspection.
