This is a prime example where daily tow truck inspections and regular, documented maintenance is challenged. The investigators will go about looking at all maintenance records and the inspections that drivers conduct on the day of use. Is your company's inspection process capable of proving no neglect on the vehicle driver's part? Although the company is innocent until proved guilty, there's a huge burden of proof that goes against the grain.
