During Brake Safety Week in September, a total of 13.2% of inspections conducted during Operation Airbrake resulted in vehicles being deemed out of service for brake violations, and almost 15% were sidelined for non-brake related violations.
Over 18,000 inspections were conducted in the US and Canada over the course of the week. The inspections are designed to promote routine brake checks and emphasize the importance of brake maintenance.
A member of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance announced brakes must be routinely checked for driver safety and everyone else on the road.
