Make sure that you and your equipment are ready for the 72-hour roadside inspection and law enforcement blitz which will focus on Cargo Securement this year.
~ Ensure that your vehicle is in tip-top shape, wear your seat belt, don’t speed, don’t drive fatigued and put your cell phone down when behind the wheel.
~ Be aware that the most common violation areas are: brakes out of adjustment & other brake problems, lights, tires and wheels plus cargo load securement.
~ Have your CDL & medical card available (including any waivers). ~ Keep your log book current (as of the last duty status) and include the last seven days.
~ Make sure you have your annual inspection for the truck, registration for trailer and that all documents in the permit book are updated.
~ Ask for a sticker if you get a level one roadside inspection.
