Lights are not just for decoration: There is a temptation to consider lights to be some sort of poor relation that does not require attention. In fact poor lights will get you stopped by the police and you might end up paying a hefty fine. There are traffic laws that specifically require that you have good lighting.

It takes a really powerful braking system on the tractor and trailer to stop straight, fast and safe. The brakes are probably the most important safety feature on the truck. Brakes generate massive amounts of friction and heat every time the driver steps on the brake peddle to slow or stop the truck.

Being sure the brakes, brake fluid, hoses and connections are in good shape is a top priority.
