Pilot Flying J is again offering free mid-trip inspections for drivers from May 24-June 7 as part of the annual Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s International Roadcheck event.
“During the 72-hour CVSA Roadcheck event [June 5-7], all drivers should be prepared for a thorough inspection of driver operating requirements and vehicle mechanical fitness,” said Jason Davis, director of operations for Pilot Flying J Truck Care Service Centers. “Leading up to the event, Pilot Flying J Truck Care is here to provide necessary preparation tips to professional drivers and to help ensure trucks meet the requirements necessary for the checks. By offering free mid-trip inspections, our hope is that we help more professional drivers pass the checks successfully.”
Tires, brakes, and lights are the most common areas in which trucks fail inspection during Roadcheck. Pilot Flying J suggests that drivers prepare by: ensuring that tires, wheels, rims and hubs are examined for cuts, cracks and leaks; confirm that there are no missing, non-functioning, loose, contaminated, or cracked parts on the brake system; and inspecting all required lamps for proper color, operation, mounting, and visibility.
Drivers can utilize Pilot Flying J’s more than 130 mobile emergency roadside assistance trucks as well as its 16 service centers.
