CVSA will hold Brake Safety Week in late August – Truck News

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has announced Aug. 25-31 as the dates for this year’s Brake Safety Week.

CVSA-certified inspectors will conduct routine commercial motor vehicle inspections throughout the week. This year, the focus will be on the condition of brake linings and pads.

Brake lining and pad issues may result in vehicle violations and could affect a motor carrier’s safety rating, CVSA says in its announcement. It adds that some jurisdictions have performance-based brake testers (PBBT) and will be using them during the Brake Safety Week.

Commercial motor vehicles found to have brake-related violations will be removed from roadways until those violations are corrected.

According to CVSA, brake-related violations comprise the largest percentage of all out-of-service vehicle violations cited during roadside inspections. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s 2023 vehicle violation data shows that six out of the Top 20 vehicle violations were brake-related.

Meanwhile, last year’s CVSA International Roadcheck results showed that brake-system violations were the top vehicle violations, comprising 25.2% of all out-of-service violations.
