A trucking inspector offers this advice to help keep your truck on the road and safe.

Do a Quality Pre-Trip Inspection. Such inspections are required and a good, thorough inspection can help keep you alive.

Walk Around the Truck.  Whenever you stop for fuel or food, walk around the truck. If a patrol officer can see a violation while you are on the highway, you can certainly see the problem when you walk around your truck.

Drive With Common Sense. Avoid minor traffic violations, like speeding, not using turn signals, and following too close. When you are pulling a heavy load, you need more room to stop.

Heeding this advice will keep you safe and keep your insurance rates down.
