Responsibilities of Truck Drivers & Trucking Companies
Trucking companies have many responsibilities when it comes to truck maintenance. These responsibilities are designed to keep the roadways safe for the public. The core element of prevention in terms of commercial truck accidents is the proper care and maintenance of the truck itself. This responsibility is shared by the trucking company and the truck driver individually. When a trucking company fails to properly maintain its vehicles, catastrophic injuries, property damage, and wrongful death can result.
When a truck company fails to properly care for and maintain its fleet, they may be liable in the event of an accident. Commercial trucks are often subjected to intense and demanding schedules. They are required to carry large loads across long distances on a regular basis. As a result, proper maintenance is essential.
The maintenance responsibilities of trucking companies include:
- Get the truck thoroughly inspected at least once per year
- Display documentation of that inspection on the body of the truck
- If any defect is discovered, remove the vehicle from the road
- Systematically inspect, repair, and maintain all company trucks
- Keep the frame, suspension, axles, and wheels in top condition
- Keep the trucks' maintenance records for at least one year
