Training Topic Checking Your Vehicle

February 7, 2014

While most vehicle collisions are preventable, they continue for a number of reasons.  Driver error due to distraction, impairment, frustration or aggression continues to top the list of causes for most crashes; however, roughly one in ten crashes are caused by equipment that was not operating properly. 

The simple truth is that motor vehicles (cars through tractor trailers) have fluids that need to be replaced and parts that wear out. If you own a motor vehicle, you have a duty to make sure that your car, truck or bus is in safe working order every time you take it on the road.

Many crashes could be prevented with a regular inspection program that leads to proper maintenance of the equipment.
