The laws governing commercial motor vehicles are not easy to understand and it can take hours wading through them to find anything. Passing inspection requires a roadmap to which one must commit faithful execution over time. Insights from Inside, written courtesy of the experience of a transportation enforcement officer/CVSA inspector with a background as a licensed mechanic, provides that roadmap, along with tips and cost-saving suggestions for heavy truck drivers, owner/operators, and fleet managers. It also offers maintenance suggestions, insider insight, and strategies on how to pass CVSA Level 1 inspection during roadside stops with a commercial motor vehicle.
While the book’s focus is Ontario laws, there’s some policy standardization throughout North America and the same inspection procedure and training for enforcement officers tasked with inspecting commercial motor vehicles, trailers, and buses reigns continent-wide—so its data points are wide ranging. Armed with this book, drivers and fleet operators can know what to expect no matter in what jurisdiction an inspection is performed.
