Improper brake adjustment is the #1 reason tractor-trailers go out of service. In general, today's drivers are not as mechanically inclined as those in the past, and many don't understand the basic functions of air brakes and how to inspect them.

This program covers a critical safety topic in 20 minutes and keeps your drivers' attention with dramatic footage, dynamic graphics, 3-D animation, hazard perception challenge scenarios, and "Road Wise" commentary from seasoned transport pros.
