SESSION

Parking brake best practice

On Demand

Many clients and operations now require trucks to be fitted with systems to mitigate the risk of rollaways. These can range from aural and visual alarms to advanced systems that apply the parking brake if doors are opened. 

Join our panel to explore parking brake best practice, including— 

  • how clients and operators can assess the risk of rollaways and evaluate controls 
  • the potential safety issues of air versus spring brakes 
  • what modern parking brake systems can and can’t achieve 
  • potential future solutions. 

The session will be available on demand throughout TMC. You’ll be able to tell us about your parking brake experiences through our online platform. The ATA Industry Technical Council will use the insights from the discussion in the review of our parking brake operation technical advisory procedure.
