Maintaining truck brakes is crucial to limiting the number of truck safety hazards and accidents. Roadside assistance and mobile truck repair services for truck brake repairs are common. To help reduce the number of truck brake-related issues, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, and organization in the trucking industry instituted “Brake Safety Week” in which truck air brakes were checked for problems and out-of-service defects.
The Operation Air Brake campaign is part of an ongoing effort of an international truck and bus brake safety program that is focused on the improvement of commercial vehicle brake safety across North America. The Brake Safety Week occurred during the week of September 12-18 at locations across North America.
Over 30,000 trucks and buses including 18 wheelers, tractor trailers, low boys, reefers, semi-trucks, recreational vehicles, freightliners and heavy haulers were inspected during Truck Brake Safety Week.
Just under 10% of the trucks that were inspected were placed out of service for brake adjustments. Another 8% of the trucks were placed out of service for brake components. Nearly 15% of the trucks inspected were placed out of service for brakes.
Just imagine all of the accidents that were prevented due to the identification of faulty truck brakes during this truck air brake campaign. It is safe to estimate that several trucks would have needed roadside mobile repair services if not for this safety campaign.
