Truck association cites progress on safety agenda

A report released by the American Trucking Association (ATA) reflects progress on a list of 20 critical steps necessary to reduce highway crashes. By the end of last year, there had been forward movement in several areas, including the safe use of technology, establishment of a national registry for certified medical examiners, and a system to prescreen potential truck drivers.

Work remains to be done in other areas, such as enactment of primary seatbelt laws, programs to target aggressive driving, crashworthiness standards for large trucks, and a clearinghouse for driver drug and alcohol test results.

The ATA says that “no meaningful progress” has been made toward a national speed limit of 65 miles per hour and speed limits for all commercial vehicles. ATA president and CEO Bill Graves expressed appreciation that state and federal partners have addressed priority items that will make commercial motor vehicles safer.
