Fleet managers and commercial truck and bus drivers please take note. The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will soon conduct its annual Brake Safety Week across the United States, Canada and Mexico. The effort runs September 11-17.
This program is CVSA’s annual week-long campaign to promote commercial vehicle brake safety through education, awareness and enforcement. Officials will be conducting inspections in North America throughout the week and collecting and reporting inspection data, particularly relative to brake systems.
CVSA offers related educational materials at http://www.operationairbrake.com/ available for free download.
