Crash Response Adds V-Stroke Meter to Measure Airbrake Push Rod Travel

A large number of heavy trucks involved in crashes have airbrakes that are out-of-adjustment resulting in decreased braking ability. Reconstructing a crash involving a truck with airbrakes involves measuring¬† the airbrake pushrod travel in each brake to determine if the brakes were in or out-of-adjustment. A tractor-trailer will likely have at least ten brakes that need to be measured. Rather…
