We’re up to the pre-trip inspection part of my CDL class and I’ve been re-watching this video to get it down:
Just wondering if there other good videos out there that people have used? Hopefully something shorter than an hour?!
Also, I have a question about this whole pre-trip process? I understand it’s important from a safety perspective so why do we have to rely on memorizing this process?! Why not use a written a checklist that would produce better consistency and eliminate the likelihood of omissions or mistakes? After years of being in IT I can say from experience that using a written checklist for long complicated procedures is far more reliable and consistent than trying to work from memory. Personally I’m of the Alert Einstein school of thought, don’t waste mental energy, or risk mistakes memorizing things that can easily be written down / looked up for reference.
