Question:

Why should you complete a post-trip inspection report?

A To alert others to safety problems requiring repair
Explaination

Each vehicle you operate should be inspected after each trip. Make a list of any safety-related issues you discovered while driving the vehicle, as well as any repairs you believe are required. If there are any safety issues, the inspection report will inform the next driver. It will also inform the operator if any safety-related repairs are required. By the end of the day's use of the vehicle, federal laws demand an inspection report to be completed. [49 CFR 396.11]
