And finally, a word from our attorney: The information provided in this article - and in those linked from it - is the personal opinion(s) of this author, and is in no way to be considered as the final word in brake adjustment or maintenance. This overview should in all cases be used merely as motivation to take a proper air brake course in your local jurisdiction.
