NTSB Announces Single-Truck Accident Meeting

Today the National Transportation Safety Board announced in the Federal Register (78 FR 29781) that they would be holding a meeting in Washington, DC on June 4th to look at the results of a Safety Study on the Characteristics of Single-Unit Truck Accidents Resulting in Injuries and Death.

We have been seeing a large number of news reports about single-truck accidents, many of which involve hazardous materials. A reduction in the number of such accidents would be of immeasurable benefit to shippers, transporters and the general public.

The meeting is open to the public and the NTSB will web cast the meeting (I am so glad to see more and more federal agencies learn the value of webcasting; NPPD PLEASE take note). The link will be available on the www.NTSB.gov website.
