Brake Safety Week September 6th to 12th – 2015
As a result of the annual Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance 72-hour Road Check – brakes are consistently recorded as the leading cause of out-of-service violations. Brake-related violations make up 46.2% of all out- of-services cited during roadside inspections.
Following the 72-hour road check, each year in September the CVSA dedicates a week to focus on “Brake Safety.” This year from September 6th – 12th remind your drivers to be prepared!
Brake Safety Week is CVSA’s annual outreach and enforcement program designed to improve commercial vehicle brakes safety. During the week-long campaign, inspectors will conduct brake system inspections on trucks and buses throughout North America to identify out-of-adjustment and brake-system violations. Vehicles with defective or out-of-adjustment brakes will be placed out of service.
