Giles County Roadside Inspections
You're invited to a unique Roadside Inspection event with the Tennessee Trucking Association and the Tennessee Department of Safety. Join us on March 26th at the Giles County Scales, I-65 North, for an educational experience in vehicle inspections
You are invited to participate in a Roadside Inspection conducted by the Tennessee Trucking Association in conjunction with the Tennessee Department of Safety on March 26th at the Giles County Scales on I-65 North, mile marker 5 out of Alabama -northbound side.
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 are checked.
This facility has a weigh-in-motion (WIM) scale along with a DOT reader, license plate reader, over-height, length, and width detector, and a Performance-based brake tester (PBBT). We are very excited about this opportunity to work with the Department of Safety again at this facility.
The event 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 get away, I think you will find it to be a very enlightening experience. Even if you can’t make it, please try to send someone from your company who works with log records, 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 also be provided for all who participate!
Thank you P&S Transportation for your generous lunch sponsorship. Please RSVP to this event so we can get a headcount for food. You can RSVP above.
