CVSA announces dates for Brake Safety Week
Posted May 21, 2021
This year’s Brake Safety Week is scheduled for August 22-28, according to the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA).
The enforcement campaign is a part of the larger Brake Safety Awareness Month, which takes place in August.
During CVSA’s annual enforcement event, roadside inspectors will:
- Focus on the brake systems and components as they conduct North American Standard Inspections; and
- Compile data on brake hoses/tubing, the emphasis this year.
The association will issue a report on its findings later this year.
The event is also an opportunity for motor carriers to educate drivers and maintenance service providers on importance of brake safety.
