Fleet Management Weekly
By Mike Quimby Senior Vice President and General Manager, Element Fleet Management
Fleet managers have a valuable opportunity this month – a built-in accelerator, if you will – to demonstrate commitment to both their drivers and the communities they serve by focusing on vehicle brake safety.
What should fleet professionals know about the inspections?
Sept. 11-17 is Brake Safety Week, an annual effort sponsored by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance. Law enforcement throughout North America will inspect commercial motor vehicles and educate the industry about the importance of properly maintaining brakes. Inspectors will check large trucks and buses to identify out-of-adjustment brakes, and identify violations to braking systems and anti-lock braking systems (ABS).
Why is Brake Safety Week particularly important to those who oversee fleets and what should they know about the inspections?
