Antilock Brake Systems

TCA supports federal regulations to require that all new trucks and tractors manufactured after December 1999 be equipped with antilock braking systems (ABS) and that all new dollies and trailers manufactured after December, 2001 be equipped with ABS.

Prior to the dates that ABS would be mandated, TCA encourages all carriers to voluntarily equip an ever-increasing portion of their new vehicles with ABS. The voluntary phase-in period will provide the necessary time for manufacturers to engineer ABS for all vehicles and assure acceptable levels of durability, reliability, and maintainability.This time frame will also allow carriers to become familiar with ABS and establish mechanic and driver training systems that ensure safe and effective operation.
