Cancelled – PORTLAND ROADSIDE INSPECTION
June 5 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
PORTLAND ROADSIDE INSPECTION INVITATION – PLEASE RSVP FOR HEADCOUNT OF FOOD
You are invited to participate in the Roadside Inspection conducted by the Tennessee Trucking Association in conjunction with the Tennessee Department of Safety on Friday, June 5, at Portland Scale House located on I-65 North at Mile Marker 119. The North bound side is closed for checking trucks. We will park on the North bound side and car pool to the South bound side. You can park on the pavement. The entrance to the North bound side off of Hwy 31 is closed to traffic. You can only enter the North bound side from the interstate.
Participants will divide into teams and a State Trooper will be assigned to lead each team. Teams will 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, 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 information and experience. Please feel free to share this invitation with others you know who might be interested in participating.
There will also be a lunch sponsored by Old Time Express, Inc. and Tennessee Steel Haulers for all who participate.
