Retired Trooper Saves Thousands for Truckers
Mike Templeton, a retired Indiana State Trooper, teaches drivers how to correctly diagnose if their air-brake system are properly functioning and up to code, before they leave on a trip. These minimal adjustments contribute to a massive decrease in the out of service times these companies face. Jim Sweigart, a risk manager, noted that after pre-trip training sessions with Templeton, the out of service rate decreased over 50% over the course of 2 years. The drivers who have taken the course were very receptive to criticism and help, as all tips benefit the public safety as well as the drivers individual records.
