Brake Safety Week is September 6-12. Tens of thousands of vehicles can expect an inspection by state and federal inspectors, with an emphasis placed on brake components.
According to CVSA, inspectors will look for "brake-system components to identify loose or missing parts, air or hydraulic fluid leaks, worn linings, pads, drums or rotors and other faulty brake-system components."
CVSA said during the 2014 inspection spree, inspectors from participating agencies inspected 13,305 vehicles, resulting in 2,162 trucks put out-of-service for brake violations.
