FMCSA has issued a proposed rule that would eliminate the requirement of drivers to submit vehicle inspection reports in which they found no defects or problems.
An aerodynamic truck, a natural gas engine, trailer suspensions and a powertrain package are among the products featured.
Proposal pertains to retaining driver-vehicle inspection reports when the driver has neither found nor been made aware of any defects.
Now more than ever, you’re responsible for what you drive, including company trailers. Take control of maintenance with robust inspection procedures and self-education to avoid inspection hassles.
FMCSA changed the deadline to June 30 for submission of Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports and Driver Vehicle Examination Reports.
