** 2013 Brake Safety Awareness Week is this week, Sept 8-14! **

Check your brakes:
- Are the hoses rubbing together? TIP: Zip-tie them so they
don't rub!...
- Are the hoses crimped? If so, replace them!
- Brake out of adjustment? Maximum push rod travel allowed d
depends on size and type of brake chamber. If push rod travel
is beyond measurement allowed by DOT Standards it is "out of
adjustment". TIP: Measure and track changes on the
movements.
- Inoperative Brakes? Clevis pin missing? Slack adjuster no long
attached to push-rod?

These Roadside Violations can result in 12 CSA points or more!
