The American Transportation Research Institute last week released findings from the first phase of its three-part research effort aimed at mitigating large truck rollovers.
ATRIâ€™s interactive map, which can be accessed on the groupâ€™s website www.atri-online.org, gives insight into the location of high frequency rollover locations in 31 states.
â€œThis research is not only important to the trucking industry, as it informs drivers of potentially dangerous locations, but it should also jump-start the dialogue between industry and government to work together to improve safety at these sites,â€� Steve Niswander, vice president of safety policy and regulatory relations for Groendyke Transport, said in a statement.
The White House Office of Management and Budget has cleared a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rule on stability control to prevent rollovers.
