Winter Is Approaching – Make Sure Your Truck is Prepared for Winter Driving

With winter approaching, the first step to preventing unnecessary incidents is to make sure equipment is ready for that first unexpected freeze or storm.
Check These Essential Items:
1. Radiators – make sure there are no leaks and have proper winter coolant.
2. Tires  – balding tires reduce starting traction by 30-50% – be sure to have good tread depth.

3. Wiper blades  – should be in good condition to sweep snow and sleet off the windshield. If new blades are installed, check the arm pressure to ensure effective operation.
4. Heater and defroster – make sure they are functioning correctly – when functioning at their full capacity, will keep your windshield clear and you and your passengers warm.
5. Lights  – important in winter weather to ensure that you are clearly visible to other drivers. Be sure both headlights work on upper and lower beams and are correctly adjusted. Check that stop, tail, clearance lights and directional signals work properly and are clean.
6. Brakes – make sure they are in top condition to provide uniform braking.
7. Muffler and exhaust system  – should be in good condition and tightly fitted so carbon monoxide does not seep into the interior of the vehicle where it could cause serious illness or death to the driver or occupants.
8. Battery – cold weather lowers battery power – make sure yours is in good condition, and in case it is necessary, know the proper procedure for using a booster battery.
9. Fifth Wheel Lubrication – for tractor-trailer combinations, make sure a winter grade of lubricant is used on the fifth wheel. Some heavy summer grades of lubricant at low temperatures become too heavy and interfere with steering on slippery surfaces.
10. Windows and mirrors – windows should be […]

Guide to Driver’s Vehicle Pre and Post Trip Inspections Reports (DVIR)

A Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR), by law, needs to be completed by drivers of any commercial vehicle at the beginning of the workday before work begins, and also at the end of the day when driving is finished (pre-trip inspection and post-trip inspections). The law is enforced by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the report can be on paper or paperless.

Vehicle inspections are an important part of a truck driver’s daily routine and they are essential to keeping vehicles in good condition while ensuring road safety and fleet compliance. It ensures the safety of not just the driver, but also everyone else on the road.

Pre-Trip Inspection

At the start of a shift, prior to departing on a trip, a driver must check all areas of the cab and trailer looking for signs of wear or damage that could pose a safety hazard while driving. They should review the previous DVIR completed on the vehicle. If there are defects noted these must be inspected and signed off. If the defects have not been corrected they must be repaired before the vehicle can be used. It is meant to ensure that the vehicle is safe for operation and is free from defects.

Post-Trip Inspection

At the completion of the day’s work, a driver must complete a DVIR on the vehicle by performing a complete visual inspection of the truck. This inspection should be identical to the pre-trip inspection—looking for damage or wear that should be addressed to prevent posing a safety concern.

DVIRs need to be kept for a minimum of three months.

View a sample of a DVIR and watch an informative video about the inspection process.
