ATRI, the folks who determined the percentage likelihood of a commercial motor vehicle driver becoming involved in a future crash based on past traffic citations, is now looking into safety culture and certification programs for CMV operators.
Here is their summary statement on this issue:
"The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) is working to gain a better understanding of the concept of safety culture and views on certification programs within CMV companies. The first of these topics will focus on overall company attitudes and practices regarding safety, while the second will inquire about experiences with safety certification programs. Your feedback will be very helpful in this study, and all information will remain confidential. If you would like a copy of the final research report and best practices, please include your contact information."
