Brake Safety Day scheduled for September 7

Roadside inspection personnel will focus on brake safety the first Thursday in September, according to the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA). Brake Safety Day, scheduled September 7, 2017, is a part of CVSA’s larger Operation Airbrake Program.

During Brake Safety Day, enforcement will primarily use Level I Inspection procedures as they identify common brake violations. Those commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) found to have critical brake violations will be placed out of service.

The enforcement program offers CVSA an outreach opportunity to educate motor carriers, drivers, technicians, and owner-operators on the importance of proper brake maintenance, operation, and performance.

CVSA reports that brake-related violations accounted for 45.7 percent of all out-of-service violations cited during International Road check 2016 — the highest percentage for that year’s campaign. Note that International Road check also uses Level I Inspection procedures, which focuses on both CMVs and drivers.

Thank You! BE SAFE OUT THERE!
