Monitoring the operational status of any vehicle’s different parts is an important part of being a responsible driver. With something as capable of generating as much momentum as a truck, it becomes doubly so. That’s why American Truck Showrooms has updated and revised their guidelines for pre-trip inspections.
An inspection is performed every single time a driver is getting ready to pull a truck off of our lot. This helps keep the truck itself in the top performing conditions you can expect from ATS trucks and, more importantly, protects the driver and others on the road.
If you’re a driver, this checklist serves as a vital guide to keeping your truck safe and legal. Even if you aren’t a driver, it provides an interesting look into all the steps that truck drivers follow every time they’re ready to get on the road.
