Week long brake inspection blitz set for September

Начална страница | Интересно | Българи в Транспорта | Week long brake inspection blitz set for September

Truck inspectors will ramp up enforcement, specifically on brakes, Sept. 16-22 as part of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance‘s annual Brake Safety Week.

 This year’s Brake Safety Week is a return to norm for CVSA, after paring the blitz down to a single day last year.

 CVSA says most of the inspections performed during the week-long blitz will be full Level I inspections, the most comprehensive inspection. However, inspectors will have a keen focus on brake components, including loose or missing parts; air or hydraulic fluid leaks; defective rotor conditions; measurement of push-rod travel; mismatched air chamber sizes across axles; air reservoir integrity and mounting; worn linings, pads, drums or rotors; required brake-system warning devices; and other brake-system components. Vehicles with defective or out-of-adjustment brakes will be placed out of service, says CVSA.

 Last year, 14 percent of trucks inspected during the one-day brake blitz were placed out of service for brake-related violations. In the annual Roadcheck inspection spree (which took place in June), brake violations usually comprise the largest percentage of out-of-service violations, CVSA notes.

 In an unannounced Brake Safety Day inspection blitz earlier this year, just under 14 percent of trucks inspected were ordered out of service for brakes violations.
