Albemarle County Police Share Results of Operation Air Brake Safety

In an effort to keep the roads safe, the Albemarle County Police Department Motor Carrier Safety Unit participated in a national campaign, Operation Air Brake Safety.  The campaign focused on motor carrier safety with a special focus on proper brake adjustment standards.  Officers conducted multiple inspections from September 10 to September 14. 

As a result of that effort, 79 violations were discovered during 19 total inspections.  There was an average of nearly five violations per inspection.  Five vehicles were placed out of service and one driver was placed out of service. 

Our traffic unit will continue to focus on motor carrier safety on a weekly basis as well as following other targeted safety programs mandated by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance.  The next special initiative will be from October 14 to October 20 for Operation Safe Driver Week.
