SHOP TIPPS

We celebrated Driver Appreciation Week in September, and it was a great opportunity to shake hands and thank as many drivers as possible in person! Great American drivers, like yourself, keep this country moving forward. It is also, without a doubt, one of the toughest jobs to perform, and my hat is off to each and every one of you. We have seen many changes over the years with this profession. We experienced the government’s addition of catalytic converters to trucks. We fought through hours of service rules and now have electronic logs. The equipment keeps getting better and better, engines are pulling again, and trucks are seeing the best fuel mileage in history. Change, no matter how hard we fight it, does happen, and in the end, we are usually better off. One area I will argue technology has not improved is in the driver habits surrounding pre-trip and post-trip inspections. We can now sit in the truck and fill out a driver vehicle inspection report without looking at anything. Is there anyone who would argue this is good? Each of us has the best tools in the world: a good set of eyes, a big nose, and a good set of ears. Some of us old people, like me, have hearing aids that help us perform daily tasks, but in the end, you have to use these tools if you expect any benefit from them.

Pre-trip inspections are where these tools are best used and applied to help keep you and Big G Express employees safe. Stopping at each axle position and looking at lug nuts is where your eyes benefit us all. Sniffing for the smell of 90-weight oil and listening for air leaks or the clunk of wheels and tires are another way these tools can help save lives. Pre-trip inspections are the only ways you can ensure you are protecting the people around you. Listening for sounds that are not normal and looking for things out of the ordinary are ways of keeping us all safe. We all make choices every day that affect others, and drivers face this daily or even hourly. Choosing not to do pre-trips is a bad choice, one that will get someone hurt. Please don’t be ordinary, be extraordinary and do a walk around every time you stop.

Thanks for all you do! –Tim Tipps
