CVSA has announced Brake Safety Day on September 7th, 2017. This day-long inspection blitz is replacing the annual CVSA brake safety week-long blitz.
The Level 1 37-step inspections will include a concentration on the following:
– Brake system components
– Air or hydraulic fluid leaks
– Worn linings, pads, drums, or rotors
– Other faulty brake system components
In addition to preparing by checking out brakes independently, consult with an FMCSA Qualified Brake Inspector when in doubt about your systems.
Feel free to call a DOT Consultant at CNS with any additional questions.
