  • Successful commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers must do all they can to avoid accidents, roadside breakdowns and lost road time due to poor vehicle maintenance. Conducting vehicle inspections helps drivers keep their vehicles in working order. Routine vehicle inspections enable drivers to discover unsafe conditions before they cause accidents or crashes, find mechanical problems before they lead to costly breakdowns, prevent being placed out of service during a roadside inspection and avoid being subject to infractions/fines that affect productivity and profits.
