What are the requirements of truckers and trucking companies regarding brake maintenance?

Drivers are required by law to write post-trip inspection reports, and trucks are subject to yearly inspections and roadside audits. The trucking company is responsible for ensuring that regular inspections and post trip reports take place. If an accident results due to a brake failure, both the driver and company may be held liable for damages.
