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 data inconsistencies across the 1994-2004 time series. 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.
