Commercial Truck Safety: Overview

This report briefly reviews heavy truck safety trends, then looks at Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's role in promoting safety in the heavy truck industry. It then divides heavy truck safety issues into three categories, and addresses each in turn: issues related to motor carriers (the companies that make up the industry, the majority of which have only a handful of vehicles); issues related to the vehicles themselves; and issues related to commercial drivers.
