Safety Researchers to Examine Speed Differentials Between Cars, Trucks

February 22, 2007

ALEXANDRIA, Va. --– The American Transportation Research Institute is working with industry partners to assess how possible speed differentials between cars and trucks on the road impact safety. ATRI is investigating the role of speed differentials created by posted speed limit differentials, speed governors and excessive/illegal speeds in contributing to truck-car safety issues. Preliminary data and analyses will be incorporated into a sophisticated model to better understand exposure issues and crash outcomes.In the first phase of this study, ATRI is conducting a confidential survey to better understand the use of speed governors in the industry and the related safety impacts. ATRI is seeking the participation of motor carriers that use or have experience with speed governors. Survey responses will be analyzed, and carriers may be asked to participate in a follow-up survey.
