ATRI report reinforces strong link between driver behavior, truck crashes
The new release is a 2022 update to American Transportation Research Institute's findings originally published in 2005 and amended in 2011 and 2018 that all show unsafe driver habits are a reliable predictor of future accidents.
“Having a science-based model for predicting crashes is one of the most important tools the trucking industry can have," said Dan Horvath, American Trucking Associations (ATA) VP of safety policy. "ATRI’s Crash Predictor research allows carriers to target and monitor those truck driver behaviors that matter most. With truck crashes increasing, there is no better time to have this data in our hands.”
