Neenah, WI — The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will conduct its Brake Safety Day on Thursday, September 7, 2017. On that day, commercial motor vehicle inspectors throughout North America will focus on brake system compliance.

“Brake Safety Day serves an important function,” said Tom Bray, subject-matter expert at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “It reminds carriers to pay attention to their vehicles’ brake systems. During this event, carriers should take a special look at their maintenance practices and driver inspection training to see if there is room for improvement.”

Law enforcement will inspect large trucks and buses to identify out-of-adjustment brakes as well as brake-system and antilock braking system (ABS) violations. Brake systems were the number one out-of-service vehicle violation during CVSA’s 2017 International Roadcheck in June.

J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. is offering a free whitepaper, The Importance of Brakes: Key Components, Inspection and Maintenance, to help all personnel at carriers prepare for the event. The whitepaper explains how air brakes function and details necessary measures to keep brake systems in good condition.
