    Wouldn't be the first time an inspection form was pencil whipped.

    I drive a 2018 Volvo D13. It's got disc brakes on both drive axles and the steer axle. You can't inspect the brakes on a pre-trip. I guess you might be able to see whether or not the rotor was missing, but since you can't see the pad material, I could see why nobody would ever look down there. But to really inspect the brake pads, you'd have to pull the wheel off.

    My crew runs lift trucks. Every now and then, I'll head out after everyone leaves and put a tag on the oil dipstick. It'll be marked "turn in with check sheet". If it isn't turned in, I'll have them pop the engine cover a couple of days later. It's amazing the look on their faces as I'm sure they just check off everything if nothing is falling off.
