Snowbridge Roto-Rooter of Breckenridge, Colorado, is teaming up with the Colorado Motor Carriers Association of Denver to host a truck town meeting and safety seminar. The free seminar will address trucking safety and other issues pertinent to the local commercial driver community.
The seminar will focus on key issues facing Colorado trucking as well as the latest changes and additions to the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration and Department of Transportation regulations. State and local inspectors will be onsite to perform roadside inspection training, and all CDL drivers, fleet managers, safety managers and company owners are encouraged to participate in this industry-specific event.
The seminar, specifically the roadside inspection training, could prove valuable to commercial drivers in the future. The Saskatoon Police Service recently completed its annual Operation Streetsweep and deemed 24 of the 413 vehicles inspected to be not roadworthy and towed them away. The vehicles failed their roadside inspections due to major safety violations. The police also identified a total 1,155 vehicle equipment violations when inspecting lighting, brakes, steering components, tires, glass and other vehicle equipment, The Star Phoenix reported.
