The book helps commercial vehicle inspectors identify when a commercial motor vehicle can no longer be safety operated for fear of causing an accident or breakdown due to its mechanical condition.
The guidebook makes a good maintenance resource for fleets and owner-operators as well, providing clues on out-of-service conditions to watch for during PM inspections.
As a safety and compliance resource, it also provides list of driver OOS violations as well as hazardous materials transportation violations.
