    Ours USUALLY do, but we always have to go behind them and check.

    You’ll be pretty much SOL though if you have hazmat in the nose behind something too big to climb over.

    Yeah that is my main concern. I’ll definitely be checking the BOLs carefully and trying to find each HM pallet to be sure it is secured. Ought to be interesting!

    After a while it will become second nature. Thats when you really need to pay attention. Random inspections are for the guy who gets complacnent. Talking form experiance. But I don't know anything about l&p

    I never had an inspector open the trailer when inhalation hazard placards were displayed. If you were paid an inspector’s salary, would you open that door?
