In this whitepaper, American Trucking Associations sets the record straight about the involvement of fatigue in large truck crashes, highlighting how anti-trucking industry interest groups wildly exaggerate its role in crashes.
"While every crash on our nation's highways is a tragedy – particularly those that involve serious injuries or fatalities – the first step toward reducing crashes is being honest about what causes them," ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. "We have often been told by self-appointed 'experts' that fatigue is the leading cause of truck-involved crashes, and this report clearly demonstrates that is not true."
The white paper shows how the canard that 30% to 40% of truck crashes is just that – an exaggeration. Download the whitepaper to find out more.
