EFFECTS OF NEW ENTRANTS ON MOTOR CARRIER SAFETY. CHAPTER 16 OF TRANSPORTATION IN AN AGE OF DEREGULATION

This study presents a statistical analysis of the safety performance of trucking firms newly entered into the motor carrier market, as compared with the performance of motor carriers who existed prior to the passage of the Motor Carrier Act of 1980. The study measures accident rates per 100,000 vehicle-miles of the new entrants versus the established carriers, and controls for other factors that might influence accident rates.
