driving down the road and paying attention to the idiots in traffic around you and a line blows or a small leak the compressor cant keep up with and the brakes lock up? no good that alarm will give you enough time to get pulled over hopefully.
a company i work around just had a pole line truck crash because of the brakes but it was something stupid.
the driver had a newish helper that they always joked and messed with on the crew.
one day they were going to lunch and at highway speed the newish helper thought it would be funny to hit the button for the brakes.
the driver held on and pulled the button back out.
the problem is that air brakes dont typically all release at the same time so one of the front brakes stayed locked up later than the other and driver couldnt hold on and rolled the truck.
brakes are nothing to play with and deleting that alarm can be done but not advisable just because of what it is telling you.
