CVSA Brake Safety Week: September 15-21

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) Brake Safety Week
will be taking place from September 15-21. During this time,
enforcement officials throughout North America will conduct
roadside safety inspections on commercial and motor vehicles.

Enforcement officials will be paying special attention to brake
hoses and tubing. CVSA is highlighting brake hoses and tubing as a
reminder of their importance to mechanical safety and fitness.
Hoses and tubing will be checked for proper attachment, any damage,
leaking and appropriate flexibility.

Out-of-adjustment brakes and brake-system violations accounted for
45 percent of all out-of-service vehicle violations during last
year’s International Roadcheck. What to Expect Due to these
inspections, there could be potential impacts on capacity due to
many carriers opting to avoid the roads during this period. Here is
what you can expect:

  • Possible increase in ship time
  • Temporary drop in truck capacity
  • Rate spikes in the spot market

Contact your Trinity representative today and plan ahead to avoid
interruptions in your supply chain. We can also offer you
additional services, like intermodal, to combat potential capacity
issues.
