OTTAWA, Ont. — The 2002 annual report on CCMTA’s Road Safety Vision 2010, issued this week by Transport Canada, shows an increase in commercial vehicle safety.
The Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators report shows that the involvement of commercial vehicles in serious collisions has remained stable in recent years, despite a significant increase in exposure as measured by traffic volumes.
For the period 1996-2001, the number of serious collisions involving commercial vehicles-including tractor-trailers and straight trucks-changed very little. However, for that same period, traffic volumes in the for-hire-trucking sector jumped by over 40 per cent.
