TRUCK, BUS, AND MOTORCYCLE SAFETY STATUS METHODOLOGY. VOLUME I: TECHNICAL SUMMARY

Phase I of the project established the feasibility of surveying the in-use condition of the truck, bus, and motorcycle population. Methods for inspecting each vehicle type and data collection strategies were designed. Consultations were held with representatives of the affected industries and owner groups to assess the feasibility of the inspection techniques. In Phase II, the optimal strategy was developed in detail. The approach adopted involves the use of a mobile inspection team to conduct inspections at six major sites representing three types of vehicle inspection programs. Inspection procedures and methods were developed and tested using time and motion studies, and validated in actual field tests. Equipment necessary to conduct inspections was identified.
