Routine maintenance and repairs on large commercial trucks need to be done to ensure the safety of the trucker and other motorists on the road. Defective equipment, such as faulty brakes, worn tires, steering issues and more, can lead to an accident. When a truck experiences equipment failures, due to its size and weight, it can result in serious, life-threatening injuries.
Truck drivers are subject to frequent inspections of their trucks to ensure they are fit for the road; if determined to be unsafe, they are required to undergo repairs before returning to the road.
