The research, which evaluated more than 12,000 interstate miles, found that non-commercialized interstate corridors have 6.57 truck parking spaces per mile, compared to 3.88 spaces per miles on the commercialized interstate segments.
We believe that commercial truck drivers know the most about parking, so we are inviting all drivers who use Southern Ontario highways to complete our survey (including drivers who are based outside Ontario, including the U.S.A.).
Cellphones have been the scapegoat for distracted driving over the past decade, but a new study suggests another electronic that could be a major problem: in-vehicle technology.
A new study from AAA has found that up to 63,000 truck-related crashes and hundreds of deaths could be prevented each year if all trucks had advanced in-cab and driver-facing truck cameras installed. The study claims that the benefits “far outweigh the costs.”
You can study yourself to death but this just shows that the people doing the study really have no idea what the real problems are. No amount of technology in trucks is going to prevent stupidity from car drivers.
Using data from the NHTSA and the FHA, telematics company Geotab has ranked the nation’s highways by both the number of fatal crashes and the number of traffic fatalities over the last 10 years.
A recent study has named a truck-only lanes project in Georgia as one of the nine most wasteful highway projects in America. The I-73 North Truck Lanes will cost an estimated $2 billion, which the study claims could be better used elsewhere.
Stay Metrics, providers of an evidence-based driver engagement, research, and analytics platform that enables motor carriers to retain more of their best drivers, announces the results of their latest research on the turnover predictors for women drivers.
Motorists across the world need to put down that phone. A Cambridge Mobile Telematics report reveals that phone distractions were involved in more than half of all crashes and the problem is not exclusive to the United States.
