2013 Operation Air Brake-Brake Safety Week
Date of News Release: 09/09/2013
(London, KY) -- The Kentucky State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement in London will be participating in the nation wide safety campaign, Operation Air Brake-Brake Safety Week beginning on September 8th through September 14th 2013.
Brake Safety Week is part of an ongoing effort by CVSA (Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance) that is dedicated to improving inspection, compliance, maintenance and performance of commercial vehicle brakes throughout North America.
The objective of this campaign is to reduce the number of highway crashes caused by faulty braking systems on commercial vehicles through enforcement, education, and outreach to commercial vehicle operators and industry.
KSP-Vehicle Enforcement Officers and weigh station inspectors will be stepping up enforcement by working extended hours, conducting full safety inspections, and patroling bypass routes of commercial vehicles through out the campaign.
