In September, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) conducted its annual roadside inspections in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The three-day event culminated with the CVSA imploring fleets to focus on tire health for safe vehicle operation.
According to CVSA, a total of 59,026 inspections were conducted this year. This is an increase of nearly 20,000 inspections completed since 2021. Of all Level 1 North American Standard Inspections conducted, 23.1% of commercial vehicles met the out-of-service criteria. What’s more, 18.5% were due to tire violations.
The CVSA inspections aim to ensure commercial vehicles are operating safely. They are designed to be robust in assessing vehicle maintenance and driver operations. So, while many truckers guilty of vehicle or operating violations remain undetected, tires have repeatedly topped the list as a top safety violation for these random inspections.
“Technology, like the Halo Tire Inflator, is available to address this top safety issue,” said Josh Carter, CEO of Aperia Technologies. “Halo can address more than 90% of tire health issues for carriers. It delivers a rapid ROI through enhanced fuel economy, tire life and increased uptime.”
Halo, a proven, self-powered automatic tire inflation system (ATIS) for tractor drive tires and trailers, uses a wheel’s rotation to maintain optimal tire pressure. It improves fuel economy and road safety while reducing tire expenditures, downtime, and maintenance costs.
