Predicting truck crash involvement: a commercial driver behavior-based indicator

The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) conducted research to identify a driver performance-based model for predicting future crash involvement based on prior driver history. The analysis identifies eight moving violations as significant with an associated crash likelihood increase between 21 and 325 percent. Four driver violations were identified as having a significant associated crash likelihood increase between 18 and 56 percent. Twelve convictions were significant with an associated crash likelihood increase between 24 and 100 percent. Drivers with a past crash were found to have an increased likelihood of a future crash of 87 percent. In order to address the driver behaviors identified, successful enforcement strategies were identified through interviews and surveys.
