Relative Contribution/Fault in Car-Truck Crashes

Findings on the causes of truck crashes, with emphasis on the relative fault in crashes involving large trucks and light passenger vehicles, including cars, vans, sport utility vehicles, and pickup trucks, are summarized in this paper. The main policy reason for evaluating fault and the nature of driver errors that increase crash risk is to design and implement cost-effective truck safety programs that yield the greatest safety benefits.
