Companies aren't required to have even daily truck inspections, but Cleco does twice that, inspecting their vehicles in the morning and at night.
This added expense is worth it to Cleco, because they understand how important vehicles are to their business.
Keeping trucks in good condition also helps Cleco and other truckers, because it keeps them out of trouble with Louisiana State Police, who perform random truck checks to keep the roads safer.
Cleco passed their inspection, with flying colors, and was rewarded with a sticker. But unlike regular stickers, this one can help to lower insurance rates and tells other law enforcement agencies that a truck had passed an inspection.
Passing inspections is one way that truckers can help keep busy Ark-La-Tex freeways a little safer.
