Will You be Targeted for a Roadside Inspection?

You can’t afford to not know the answer to this question! The costs that you will incur if you are subjected to inspection can be pretty high:

  • Down Time for Driver
  • Late on your Payload
  • Risk of Being Grounded
  • Fines for Violation
  • Order to Shut Down Operations

As you well know, your driver’s time is precious; a roadside inspection can easily delay him by as much as 5 hours! That translates into a lot of moola! Especially if it causes an overtime situation.

Even worse, your deliveries will be late. There is no getting around that. And a late delivery costs you immeasurably! It wreaks havoc on your reputation and may even cause you to lose business!

 

Depending on what is found during the inspection, your vehicle may get grounded, possibly causing you to hire special and costly maintenance services. A grounded truck is a delivery that is not going to happen compounding the damage to your reputation.

If you are found with violations, you could be in even more serious trouble AND that will cost you EVEN MORE! Fines for violations or paying a Settlement agreement would mean you’re getting off EASY.

The WORST that could happen, and don’t think you’re above it, the Department of Transportation could SHUT YOU DOWN!

The best you can hope for is that you are doing everything right and won’t have those problems. But do you know everything you need to?

Don’t risk it!
