NOTES: Trucks are taken out of service (OOS) when inspectors find serious violations that warrant the issuance of a vehicle OOS order. There may be some inconsistencies across the 1993-2003 data. The Bureau of Transportation Statistics obtained the data at different times (see Sources) and was unable to verify the consistency of the entire data series prior to publication.
