From the Federal Motor Carrier Saftey Administration Website.

The following table of links will give operators, mechanics, and supervisors the info they need to determine a vehicles legal operation status.  Not all violations neccessitate pulling a vehicle outof service. See the bottom link to Appendix G for the roadside inspection out of service criteria.  It is actually quite lenient in our opinion. 

We encourage all to read section 392.50 regarding fueling a vehicle while it is running.  This is illegal.  Shut your coach off when it is being fueled.  Do not fuel a coach with passengers on board.
