Truck and bus safety enforcement agencies throughout the United States and Canada will conduct Operation Air Brake, 12 hours of roadside inspections targeting brake safety. Inspections are set for Sept 4, 2003.
The Operation Air Brake campaign places a major emphasis on education and awareness of the need to improve brake safety. Drivers whose vehicles are inspected during the campaign will receive literature that provides information about proper brake inspection and maintenance.
This event is sponsored by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance and includes participation from the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, and Transport Canada.
