Transportation officers were on I-77 today at the Bluestone Travel Plaza.

Brake Safety Week is designed to get unsafe vehicles off the road and to help operators of commercial motor vehicles understand the importance of proper brake inspection.

“It’s really hard for officers to make stops out roadside and roadside it’s really hard for us to check the brakes, the dangers of being along the side of the road and go underneath the truck to check the brakes,” Transportation Officer Justin Wills said.

Brake Safety Week is an annual outreach and enforcement campaign designed to improve commercial motor vehicle brake safety throughout North America.
