"Leading up to the event, Pilot Flying J Truck Care is here to provide necessary preparation tips to professional drivers and to help ensure trucks meet the requirements necessary for the checks. By offering free mid-trip inspections, our hope is that we help more professional drivers pass the checks successfully."
Pilot Flying J reports that mid-trip inspections focus heavily on checking the status of tires, brakes, exhaust features, lights and windshields, among other important vehicle attributes.
