Brownsville Roadside Inspection
October 1 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
Brownsville Roadside Inspection will be conducted by the Tennessee Trucking Association in conjunction with the Tennessee Department of Safety on Friday, October 1st, at the Brownsville Scales on Interstate 40, mile marker 50 . Participants will divide into teams and a State Trooper will be assigned to lead each team. Teams work with the troopers as they pull vehicles in for inspections. Level I, II and III inspections will be conducted. It is the best educational experience a company can have regarding how roadside inspections are conducted. You will see what might prompt a vehicle to be pulled in, what determines the level of inspection to be performed, and what is expected when paperwork and equipment is checked. It begins at 8:00 am Central Time and concludes around 2:30 pm or 3:00 pm with a summary of the inspections conducted throughout the day. You don’t have to be a member to participate. There will be several “visitors” present. If you can possibly get away, please join us for this opportunity to learn about scale inspections. Even if you can’t make it, please try to send someone from your company who works with log records, scale violation paperwork, safety or maintenance. We have had company owners, administrative personnel, dispatch, maintenance, etc., participating in the past. All have gone away with valuable experience. Lunch will be provided by Vertical Alliance Group and P&S Transportation for all who participate! Please share this invitation with anyone in the industry you feel might be interested in participating.
