WABCO offers some ADB maintenance scheduling tips to help fleets and independents alike to help improve equipment safety
The 30th annual Roadcheck International inspection blitz is just around the corner, scheduled for June 6-8. Guided by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, inspectors throughout North America will conduct tens of thousands of checks on trucks and drivers at 1,500 locations during this three-day stretch, looking for all manner of safety violations – especially those involving brakes.
“Brake problems – including brake adjustment and overall brake system issues – accounted for 45.7% of out-of-service violations, according to the CVSA’s 2016 Roadcheck results,” noted Jon Morrison, president of the Americas for brake-maker WABCO.
“Out-of-adjustment brake concerns alone accounted for nearly one-fifth of all vehicle out-of-service violations,” he added.
