Mark your calendar! Brake safety week is coming up: 23-29. August 2020.

Brake Safety week is designed to improve commercial vehicle brake safety. So we on a behalf of AAA Freight want to kindly remind all our drivers to contact their fleet managers in order to prevent fatalities.

This year’s brake safety week, as Commercial Vehicle Alliance announced earlier this summer, and it will be organized in shape of two campaigns where CMV inspectors will go out on field and conduct brake system inspections on large trucks and buses in order to identify brake-system violations. Those campaign are:

First one is coming in ten days from today, on 23th August as Brake Safety week, and it will last until 29th of August.

The second one is trickier, it will be unannounced one-day brake safety enforcement initiative, which can come any day throughout the year.

“Despite the pandemic, commercial motor vehicle safety inspectors continue to prioritize vehicle and driver safety by conducting inspections every day,” said CVSA President Sgt. John Samis with the Delaware State Police. “Safety is always our top priority and it’s our mission to ensure the vehicles on our roadways have met all safety standards and regulations. This is especially important as we rally behind truck drivers as they transport essential goods during this public health crisis. We need to do everything we can to ensure that the vehicles truck drivers are driving are as safe as possible.”

The reason can not be more clear - The largest percentage of all out-of-service violations cited during roadside inspections are brake-related, to be more clear, it takes two football field for a Commercial Moto Vehicle, moving 65mph, to come to a complete stop with properly functioning brakes. Properly functioning brake systems are crucial to safe operation, and that why it is so important for all CMV drivers to be responsible and to maintain safety for all of us.
