I would like to start a new discussion dedicated to Pre/Post Trip Inspections, or lack thereof.... Although this procedure is required by law and everyone is compensated for preforming these task, it seems many (if not most) just aren’t doing them!! The reasoning for preforming these task are to ensure our equipment is safe to operate on the streets and highways in hopes of keeping everyone safe so that everyone can return to their loved ones at the end of their tour. The process of “toe tapping” the tires and “glancing” at the lights (those visible from the driver’s side only) has got to stop!! This thread isn’t designed to single out any one person, any one group, belittle, or make fun of anyone but rather to bring attention to an overwhelming problem in hopes of educating everyone...even those who actually preform pre/post trips. Again, no one is perfect and eventhough I take the time to do what I feel is a quality pre/post trip, I know I don’t catch everything either. With everyone’s help we can address this safety issue through education and hope this leads to everyone actually preforming pre/post trips, which helps us all.
