Bendix announces new brake systems for commercial trucks

Trucking companies in Texas and across the U.S. have had their eyes on the new products unveiled by Bendix at the inaugural North American Commercial Vehicle Show in Atlanta.

If the driver has forgotten to engage the air brakes at that time, the system will do so.

Truck drivers in Texas and around the country who may be at high risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea may soon be required to undergo mandatory testing for the condition.
