pre and post trip inspections

Some trainers have no business being a trainer and are just in it for the money. Endure this training, but don't pick up this guys bad habits. You'll be solo soon and then you'll call the shots.

Thanks this is exactly what I am trying to do, by the way he recently was in a accident. :(

pre and post trip inspections

I heard that truck drivers rarely perform the pre and post trip inspections, Is this true? I know a guy who picked up a trailer from a shipper and it had a flat tire. He insisted that instead of replacing the tire which the place said they would do for free, that rather than wasting 4 hours to change it, he would just add air and then continuing on the road to the drop destination. Once he dropped the trailer off on his post trip inspection in which he did not perform he marked the box saying the trailer was in good condition with no defects. I pointed out that the next person that got this trailer would not know about the flat tire and asked if he thought it was a good idea to just leave it for another driver to find out the hard way. He then got upset with me and and made me walk around the truck with the tire lumper and proceed to hit the tires. Am I wrong in thinking that just because he filled it with air it is still not right to leave it for the next person to find out the hard way? Do most truckers perform their inspections daily or is this just me being naive? Just curious. Happy new years by the way.
