The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) released the results from Brake Safety Week 2022.
This year, Brake Safety Week took place August 21 — 27 in the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.
During Brake Safety Week, officers performed 38,117 inspections of commercial motor vehicles. Of those vehicles, 13.3% were place out of service for brake violations.
“That also means that nearly 87% of the commercial motor vehicles inspected throughout North America during Brake Safety Week did not have brake-related critical vehicle inspection item violations,” the CVSA pointed out.
The table below breaks down the results by country.
|Country||Number of Inspections||Number of Inspections with OOS Brake Violations||Percentage of Vehicles OOS for Brake Violations|
The area of emphasis for Brake Safety Week 2022 was brake hose/tube chafing violations. Inspectors identified and documented a total of 6,305 brake hose/tube chafing violations.
Next year’s Brake Safety Week is scheduled for August 20 — 26, 2023. There will be an unannounced one-day brake safety enforcement initiative in 2023, which may be held at any time.
