TZD and Commercial Motor Vehicles – Bridging the GapMy Webinar
About the Event
The Commercial Vehicle Industry plays a vital role in supporting this state and country’s economy. National projections indicate commercial vehicle traffic will be increasing at a steady rate as the demands for goods continue to rise. Unfortunately, by their mere size these 80,000 pound vehicles create tragedy on Minnesota’s roadways. Every year Minnesota’s crash facts split fault between passenger cars and commercial vehicles. What opportunities and challenges are there as we strive towards zero deaths? From a traffic management and engineering perspective, are there ways to harness existing technologies to better prepare drivers what lies ahead? For law enforcement, the 53 foot walk from the rear of the trailer to the cab can be a long walk, but the data shows it is an important one. The presentation will provide valuable information on state and national data, as well as pose important questions that can be taken back to your respective jurisdictions.
