For any professional truck driver, brake system inspections are a critical part of preventive maintenance. Not only are they essential in preventing breakdowns and costly repairs, but they also help to promote safety for yourself and other drivers you share the roads with. Brake system inspections also happen to have been last year’s leading International Roadcheck violation.
