WABCO joins the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance

WABCO Holdings Inc., suppliers of technologies that improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles, has announced that it has joined the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA). CVSA is an international not-for-profit organization whose mission is to promote commercial vehicle safety and security by providing leadership on safety issues to law enforcement, industry, and policy makers.

WABCO is excited to support the efforts of CVSA and to be an integral part of its initiatives that bring attention to critical commercial vehicle maintenance and regular inspections that impact individual Compliance, Safety and Accountability (CSA) ratings,” said WABCO President of the Americas Jon Morrison. “We look forward to supporting Brake Safety Week to highlight the importance of properly installed and maintained brakes on commercial vehicles that help improve road safety for everyone. As a leader in the development of air disc brakes for commercial vehicles, we are deeply invested in advancing traffic safety through better stopping distances and improving CSA scores for our customers.”

CVSA recently concluded its annual, unannounced Brake Check Day where certified inspectors in the U.S. and Canada checked more than 50,000 brakes on 6,337 commercial vehicles. While results are still being tabulated for CVSA’s 2015 International Roadcheck campaign, in 2014 CVSA reported that brake-related violations found during that campaign, including brake adjustments and brake systems, comprised the largest percentage (46.2 percent) of all out-of-service violations.

“CVSA provides an invaluable service to the commercial vehicle industry by emphasizing the importance of proper brake system maintenance through its outreach to the marketplace and its educational programs,” added Morrison. “We look forward to contributing to that effort.”
