Sep 17, 2019Idealease, News, Safety, Truck Leasing, Truck Rental, Trucking

Failure to properly secure cargo or equipment on a commercial vehicle is the fourth leading category of violations (after violations for Brakes, Lights, and Tires) that result in vehicles being placed Out-of-Service.  Drivers and motor carriers should know about the importance of ensuring everything on their vehicles is properly and safely secured from shifting, tipping, sliding, or falling, even during a panic stop or rapid evasive maneuver. These violations represent over 80% of cargo related OOS violations and 13% of all OOS violations. Carriers should take care to avoid these common mistakes.
