D.O.T. ( Department of Transportation ) FMCSR  requires these inspections are carried out.  Don’t wait until DOT is auditing you or worse; an accident has taken place because your truck broke down on the road, being involved in an accident or causing an accident.  Here is a sample form.  Notice that the driver is certifying that they have inspected the vehicle and that it is either satisfactory or not for driving.  If it is NOT then there is also a note that they have contacted the supervisor concerning this non compliant vehicle.  For companies who are following a HACCP program . . . the refrigeration system is important also. Initials are required because this is a legal document.
