CVSA schedules nationwide brake blitz for Aug. 26-Sept. 1

| Monday, August 20, 2007

The same people who organize the annual Road Check inspection blitz say there’s another round of road-side inspections coming up next week – and that this time, the focus will be on brakes.

A press release from the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance is calling it “Brake Safety Week” and states there will be a combination of enforcement and educational activities. CVSA initiated Brake Safety Week in 2005 as part of its Operation Air Brake campaign.

“More than 3 million roadside commercial vehicle inspections are conducted annually throughout North America, and by far brakes make up the largest percentage of out-of-service violations cited during these inspections,” said CVSA Executive Director Stephen F. Campbell in the press release.

Brake Safety Week is scheduled from Sunday, Aug. 26 through Saturday, Sept. 1.
