Roadcheck 2000 Truck Safety Inspections
Until last year, we had seen a decline in the proportion of big trucks inspected that have safety defects. However, this year’s results have stalled at last year’s rate of 23 % with safety defects. We anticipate that most regulators would agree that a 23 % failure rate is unacceptable when public safety is involved. Governments should provide them with more resources and inspectors.
