CVSA Brake Safety Week Set for Aug. 20-26

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance Brake Safety Week will focus on brake lining/pad violations and is set for Aug. 20-26.

During Brake Safety Week, commercial motor vehicle inspectors highlight the importance of brake systems by conducting inspections of their components and removing trucks with brake-related out-of-service violations from roadways until those violations are corrected.

Throughout Brake Safety Week, CVSA-certified inspectors will conduct their usual inspections. In addition, they will be reporting brake-related inspection and violation data to CVSA.

Brake Safety Week is part of CVSA’s Operation Airbrake Program. The goal is to reduce the number of highway crashes caused by faulty braking systems on commercial motor vehicles by conducting roadside inspections and educating drivers, mechanics, owner-operators, and others on the importance of proper brake inspection, maintenance, and operation.
