Washed truck

Does DOT force you to wash your truck?

Response from Vicki:

Hello. Thanks for asking a question through our website.

We are unable to find any such regulation or requirement about a washed truck in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. If you are able to find this, please comment below.

On our site, we provide information on this topic through these pages:
* Truck Wash Savings Guide for Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers and
* DIY Truck Washing for
Money Saving Professional Truck Drivers

We hope that this is helpful to you.

Mike and I wish you safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road.

Best regards,
Vicki Simons

Please explain what "excessive oil and or grease" means.

For example:
- Does it mean a leak?
- Does it mean a glob of fifth wheel platform grease hanging off the end of the platform?
- Does it mean excess oil from a lubrication?
- Or other?

Please be more specific. Thanks.

We wish you safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road.

Best regards,
Vicki Simons
