ATRI to analyze car/truck speed differentials
Feb 13, 2007 11:53 AM
The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) is working with industry partners to analyze the potential safety impacts of speed differentials which may exist between cars and trucks on the road.
ATRI is investigating the role of speed differentials created by posted speed limit differentials, speed governors and excessive/illegal speeds in contributing to truck-car safety issues. Preliminary data and analyses will be incorporated into a model to better understand exposure issues and crash outcomes.
In Phase I of this study, ATRI is conducting a confidential survey to better understand the use of speed governors in the industry and the related safety impacts and is seeking the participation of motor carriers that use or have experience with speed governors. Survey responses will be analyzed, and carriers may be asked to participate in a follow-up survey. The survey can be accessed online by clicking here.
