ATA Associates recently released "The Road Series 3 - Level 1 Vehicle Inspections," the newest program in its series of free truck driver training DVDs.

The 17-minute program covers the requirements of the North American Standard Level 1 Inspection Procedure. A Level 1 vehicle inspection covers not only the driver's paperwork but also the entire vehicle, including the underside.

ATA's newest DVD walks drivers through the entire procedure, following the inspection format set by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance or CVSA. The DVD educates truck drivers on what to expect during the inspection procedure.

ATA Associates provides accident reconstruction, forensic engineering and litigation support to truck, automotive, railroad, marine and heavy equipment industries, with an emphasis on heavy trucking accidents.

"We are pleased to use our extensive accident reconstruction knowledge and experience in developing this important truck safety series. Look for more comprehensive truck safety DVDs in the near future. We strive to be not only experts in accident reconstruction, but also trusted experts in safety training," said Bob Swint, former NASA engineer and ATA founder.
