Nationwide, several alternatives have been implemented in an effort to minimize the conflict between trucks and passenger vehicles. This paper presents the results of an evaluation of a truck lane restriction implemented in Broward County, Florida as an attempt to provide statistical analysis regarding the effect on truck-auto accidents.
