DOT Wheel Ends Check May 17-19
How familiar are you with the term wheel ends and their function? If this is a new topic for you let’s summarize it quickly in time for the CVSA Road Check 2022. Wheel ends function as a system that includes the spindle, hub, wheel, and the bearings and fasteners. These all work to keep the wheels in place and the tires running straight and smooth.
Why is it important we talk about wheel ends? Let me tell you! The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has set the dates for its 2022 International Road Check. This 72-hour blitz focuses on commercial vehicle inspections by law enforcement across North America and will take place from May 17, 2022 to May 19, 2022. Special attention will be focused on brakes and slack adjusters during the blitz. These elements are responsible for supporting heavy loads, maintaining stability, and braking.
To learn more and prepare yourself for the CVSA Road Check 2022, our very own Regional Maintenance Manager Pat Gray does a quick run through of what you should be looking for.
