Steering & Suspension: Ensuring Control and Stability

Ausmec examiners pay close attention to steering and suspension systems during a roadworthy inspection, prioritizing three key safety aspects:

  1. Operator Safety: Precise and responsive steering allows the driver or rider to maintain control of the vehicle, minimizing the risk of losing control or swerving unintentionally.
  2. Public Safety for Occupants: A properly functioning suspension system enhances vehicle stability and handling, reducing the risk of rollovers and collisions for all occupants.
  3. Environmental Impact: Minimizing excessive wear and tear on steering and suspension components helps reduce vibrations and noise pollution.

By meticulously examining these areas, Ausmec examiners ensure that steering and suspension systems contribute to a safe and controlled driving experience for everyone, while minimizing environmental impact.

Safety certificate rules can be found on pages 21 to 28 of the Queensland Light Vehicle Inspection Manual
