OTTAWA, Ont. – A recently released public opinion survey by the Traffic Injury Research Foundation on traffic deaths “is a deliberate attempt to tarnish the image of the trucking industry and does absolutely nothing to promote the TIRF ‘s stated mission to reduce traffic-related deaths and injuries,” says the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA).

The survey, which reported over two-thirds of Canadians surveyed believe truck drivers tired from driving long hours are a serious road safety problem, was in part sponsored by the Railway Association of Canada, says the CTA. The survey also reported that two-thirds of Canadians were concerned that truckers are using drugs to stay awake.
