Why should you complete a post-trip inspection report?

You should do a post-trip inspection of each vehicle you operate. Note any safety-related problems that you found while driving the vehicle and repairs that you believe are needed. The inspection report will let the next driver know if there are safety-related problems. It will also let the motor carrier know if safety-related repairs are needed. Federal regulations require an inspection report be completed by the end of the day's use of the vehicle. [49 CFR 396.11]
