DC safe-driving group expands focus

The Alliance for Driver Safety & Security is expanding its focus beyond electronic on-board recording systems. The coalition of transportation companies promoted federal legislation to require systems in all commercial trucks.

The Alliance is expanding its scope to include other driver safety issues. Among these are:

    • Promoting alternate methods for verifying mandated drug and alcohol-testing procedures;
    • Creating the congressionally mandated drug and alcohol clearinghouse;
    • Supporting mandatory speed limiters on trucks;
    • Increasing the minimum financial requirements for starting a trucking company; and
    • Consideration of alternative compliance measurements for determining a trucking company’s safety fitness rating.
