Road Service repairs resulting from failure to perform a proper FMCSA pre-trip inspection do NOT qualify as EMERGENCY. The following items are thus excluded from EMERGENCY Road Service.

TGP will accept financial responsibility for flat tires from road hazards or casing separation. TGP will not accept run-flat/flat spots, damaged sidewalls, or operation from low air pressure.
Road Service is intended for roadside emergencies only. Any road service call determined by TGP to be for convenience will be handled and paid by TGP, however, TGP will rebill to the responsible motor carrier(s) based on requested service failures/repairs requested.
Placing a call for Road Service is a commitment on the part of the trucker to be present for the completion of such service call. If the driver decides to leave the scene of the road service request without receiving arranged service, or prior to the dispatched authorized Road Service vendor arriving, TGP will rebill the Motor Carrier(s) for the vendor’s “Dry Run”, no exceptions.
