Last year there may have been minimal changes in the intensity of inspections conducted in most states, however some states made major leaps that you may not be aware of. Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Nevada witnessed major adjustments in their inspection levels and made it to the top ten for most detailed inspections. Two factors contribute to the way this intensity level is measured. First, the number of inspections held in the state in a given year. The second is the number of highway miles contained within the state. This gives a ratio of inspection levels based on size. It is also important to keep in mind that many of these states have a different ratio of roadside and fixed location inspections. Some of the states in the top ten have more than sixty percent of their inspections on roadside. With these things in mind, be aware when traveling, you may want to add travel time to allow for an inspection just in case. As always, conducting proper pre-trip and post-trip inspections can help get you through these inspections a whole lot faster.
