Law enforcement agencies across North America will conduct a brake system inspection blitz on large trucks and buses as part of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) annual Brake Safety Week, September 6-12, to identify out-of-adjustment brakes and brake system violations. Although the week will shine a spotlight on brake safety, it is something fleets should focus on year round, said Mike Hasinec, vice president ofmaintenance support at Penske Truck Leasing.
Inspectors will be out in force in early June as part of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's (CVSA) 28th annual International Roadcheck, reviewing driver information and inspecting vehicles.
The inspections will take place from June 2-4 with about 10,000 CVSA-certified local, state, provincial and federal inspectors in jurisdictions across North America performing truck and bus inspections. (Helpful tip: Download this free guide from CVSA.)
