Brake Safety Week: September 6-12, 2015

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has announced that this year’s Brake Safety Week will take place from Sept. 6 – 12.

Properly functioning brake systems are crucial to safe commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operation. CMV brakes are designed to hold up under tough conditions, but they must be inspected and maintained carefully and consistently so they operate and perform properly throughout the vehicle’s life. Brake Safety Week is an annual outreach and enforcement campaign designed to improve commercial vehicle brake safety throughout North America.

Brake Safety Week – September 6-12, 2015 – is part of the Operation Airbrake program sponsored by CVSA in partnership with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). During the week-long brake safety campaign, CMV inspectors will conduct brake system inspections (primarily Level IV Inspections) on trucks and buses throughout North America to identify out-of-adjustment brakes and brake-system violations.

Brake-related violations comprise the largest percentage (representing 46.2 percent during Roadcheck 2014) of all out-of-service violations cited during roadside inspections. Improperly installed or poorly maintained brake systems can reduce the braking capacity and stopping distance of trucks and buses, which poses a serious risk to driver and public safety.

Brake inspections conducted during Brake Safety Week include inspection of 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. Antilock braking systems (ABS) malfunction indicator lamps also are checked. Inspectors will inspect brake components and measure pushrod stroke when appropriate. Defective or out-of-adjustment brakes will result in the vehicle being placed out of service. Read more about the inspection procedure.

Additional inspections may include some Level I Inspections and, in ten participating jurisdictions, overall vehicle braking efficiency will be […]

2015 National Truck Driver Appreciation Week Logo Unveiled

ATA Unveils 2015 National Truck Driver Appreciation Week Logo and Online Store

American Trucking Associations unveiled the 2015 National Truck Driver Appreciation Week logo and announced it has opened a new online store for NTDAW merchandise.

“National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is a tremendous tradition, one that ATA is proud to carry on each year,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. “We value the men and women who safely deliver our nation’s goods, and keep America moving forward, and we encourage fleets and shippers to honor their drivers for their hard work and commitment to the industry during this week and every week.”

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, which ATA began celebrating in 1988, will be September 13-19. During that time, America takes the time to honor all professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in tackling one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. These 3.4 million professional men and women deliver our goods safely, securely and on time.

The official NTDAW online store features affordable merchandise in a wide range of products and colors. The official NTDAW banner, which companies and organizations display during the week long festivities, is available in the online store. Orders must be placed by August 19.

“This year’s NTDAW logo incorporates the Trucking Moves America Forward insignia, the banner of our industrywide image movement,” said ATA Chairman Duane Long, chairman of Longistics, Raleigh, N.C. “It underscores how much we appreciate the effort our drivers make to move our nation and our economy forward.”

Helpful information for fleet drivers during hailstorms – Tech Tip Tuesday

There are some measures that drivers can take, though, to protect themselves and their vehicle during hailstorms.
Here are some safety tips, provided by Union Mutual of Vermont and Progressive Insurance, you can pass along to fleet drivers as a friendly reminder.

When hail is larger than three-quarters of an inch in diameter, drivers are advised to:

Stop driving. If you can see a safe place to drive to, such as inside a garage or under a service station awning, do so as soon as you can. Make sure you pull completely off the highway, but avoid ditches due to possible high-rising water.
Keep your vehicle angled so the hail hits the front of the vehicle. Windshields are reinforced to withstand forward driving and pelting objects. Side windows and back glass are not, so they’re much more susceptible to breakage.
Stay away from vehicle windows. Cover yourself with a blanket or coat, if possible, because there may be debris. In particular, protect your eyes. See if you can get onto the floor face-down, or lay down on the seat with your back to the windows.
Don’t leave the vehicle until the hailing stops. Your car will furnish reasonable protection.
