Southern Tire Mart at Pilot Flying J to Provide Complimentary Safe & Road-Ready Checks
Southern Tire Mart at Pilot Flying J (STMPFJ) is providing free Safe & Road-Ready Checks from August 1-28 as part of Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Brake Safety Week. Professional drivers are invited to take advantage of this complimentary service at all 33 conveniently located STMPFJ Truck Care centers across the country.
“Leading up to the event, Southern Tire Mart at Pilot Flying J is here to provide necessary preparation tips to professional drivers and to help ensure trucks meet the requirements necessary for the checks. By offering free Safe & Road-Ready Checks, our hope is that we help more professional drivers pass the checks successfully,” said John Boynton, president of STMPFJ.
STMPFJ’s Safe & Road-Ready Checks are heavily focused on the inspection of the tires and brakes of trucks, and include the assessment of windshields, exhaust, lights and more. The three most common failed items are tires, brakes and lights. Performing proper inspections on each of these will help reduce the chances of receiving a violation.
According to CVSA, approximately 4 million vehicle safety inspections are performed on commercial vehicles throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. As part of a special program developed by CVSA, these inspections, including CVSA Brake Safety Week, provide uniformity in safety procedures, standards, requirements and enforcement of roadside inspections.
Staffed with ASE and TIA certified technicians equipped with the right tools, products and parts, STMPFJ is prepared to get drivers in, out and back on the road again as efficiently and safely as possible. “Thorough preventative maintenance checks, standard truck services and dependable name brand tires are what fleet drivers can always expect from STMPFJ’s teams,” according to John Boynton, president of STMPFJ.
