Time for spring cleaning….What is in the Cab of your Trucks?
When is the last time you looked inside the cab, body or trailer of the trucks that your drivers are operating?
Over the years of inspecting and looking inside of commercial motor vehicles for the companies I have worked for I have seen the following items inside trucks that present unique dangerous situations to the driver and unnecessary liability exposure to the company: Dogs, cats, a folding chair, television on the dash, milk crates, garbage, windows tinted beyond federal regulations, stuffed animals in the windshield, alcohol, drugs, radar detectors and unauthorized passengers.
Some of these items are strictly prohibited by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and others are restricted by regulations.
Make sure to clean-up your cab this spring for your safety!
