Standard Level 1 Roadside Inspection

According to the American Trucking Association, inspections will cover the 37-step North American Standard Level I Inspection, however an emphasis will be placed on checking tire pressure, making sure no items are lodged between dual tires and that no deep cuts or bulges exist in the tires’ sidewalls. The vehicle inspection also includes the braking system, securement of cargo, coupling devices, exhaust system, frame, fuel system, lights, steering mechanism, driveline/driveshaft, suspension, van and open-top trailer bodies, wheels and rims, and windshield wipers. Drivers are required to provide items such as their license, endorsements, medical card and hours-of-service documentation, and may be checked for seat belt usage and the use of alcohol and/or drugs.  Read more at the link below.
