Arlington, VA – The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) recently released a technical report, Commercial Motor Vehicle Enforcement in where it lists the top 10 states that demonstrate superb safety performance.
The top 10 states are:
4. Rhode Island
7. New Mexico
9. South Dakota
“These 10 states epitomize what we would like to see in all 50 states in terms of commercial motor vehicle enforcement – a balanced approach that recognizes the importance of traffic enforcement and a focus on driver behaviours that have a relationship to truck crashes,” said Annette Sandberg, former FMCSA Administrator and former Chief of the Washington State Patrol.
Bill Graves, president and CEO of the American Trucking Associations said, “The industry applauds these state enforcement agencies who, in partnership with their respective state trucking associations and members, have made highway safety and reduced truck crashes their top priority.”
