Vehicle and Roadside Inspections (US)

There are more than eight million registered commercial vehicles on the roads today. Law enforcement officers conduct over two million inspections each year to help ensure drivers and their vehicles are safe. However, crashes still occur. When large trucks are involved, the consequences are often tragic. The United States Department of Transportation, or DOT, has instituted programs such as CSA 2010 to place more accountability on drivers and trucking companies for the operation of a safe fleet. This course will help you understand the importance of vehicle and roadside inspections and will provide information about the items for which drivers or enforcement officers will check during inspections. The content in this course is based on the criteria included in DOT Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, or FMCSA, North American Standard Inspection.
